PURPOSE Fast and reliable comprehensive quality assurance tools are required to validate the safety and accuracy of complex intensity-modulated radiotherapy (IMRT) plans for prostate treatment. In this study, we evaluated the performance of the COMPASS system for both off-line and potential online procedures for the verification of IMRT treatment plans. METHODS AND MATERIALS COMPASS has a dedicated beam model and dose engine, it can reconstruct three-dimensional dose distributions on the… CONTINUE READING
