A new method of generating beam intensity modulation filters for intensity modulated radiation therapy (IMRT) is presented. The modulator was based on a reshapable material, which is not compressible but can be deformed under pressure. A two-dimensional (2D) piston array was used to repeatedly shape the attenuating material. The material is a mixture of… CONTINUE READING
