Combined mathematical programming and heuristics for a radiotherapy pre-treatment scheduling problem

Abstract

Demand for radiotherapy treatment services has increased due to higher cancer incidence, ageing population, and a larger number of prescribed radiotherapy fractions. This higher demand can, in turn, produce longer waiting times for radiotherapy treatment. We introduce a realworld radiotherapy pre-treatment scheduling problem at a hospital in the UK. This… (More)
