Optimization of treatment planning parameters used in tomotherapy for prostate cancer patients.

Abstract

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Tomotherapy treatment planning depends on parameters that are not used conventionally such as: field width (FW), pitch factor (PF) and modulation factor (MF). The aim of this study is to analyze the relationship between these parameters and their influence on the quality of treatment plans and beam-on time. MATERIAL AND METHODS Ten… (More)
