PURPOSE Despite promising research in modulated electron radiotherapy (MERT), an applicator to produce modulated electron beams and associated treatment planning software is still not commercially available. This work investigated an optimization process in treatment planning for the McGill few leaf electron collimator (FLEC) MERT delivery device. In… CONTINUE READING
