A method is presented that automatically improves upon previous treatment plans by optimization under reference dose constraints. In such an optimization, a previous plan is taken as reference and a new optimization is performed toward some goal, such as minimization of the doses to healthy structures under the constraint that no structure can become worse off than in the reference plan. Two types of constraints that enforce this are discussed: either each voxel or each dose-volume histogram of… CONTINUE READING
