Intensity modulated radiation therapy (IMRT) and volumetric modulated arc therapy (VMAT) are state-of-the-art irradiation techniques for the delivery of highly conformal radiation fields to the target volume. These techniques require complex treatment planning system (TPS) algorithms as well as sophisticated irradiation methods. As a result, the use of quality assurance tools for the verification of the planned dose distribution prior to the treatment of the patient has become a standard… CONTINUE READING
