A Mixed Integer Linear Programming Optimization Model for Capturing Expert Planning Style in Interstitial Low Dose Rate Prostate BrachytherapyDownload
Low dose rate (LDR) brachytherapy is a minimally invasive form of radiation therapy, used to treat prostate cancer, and it involves permanent implantation of radioactive sources (seeds) inside of the prostate gland. Treatment planning in brachytherapy involves a decision making process for the...
Microbeam radiation therapy (MRT) is a pre-clinical type of radiation therapy that uses an array of high-dose microbeams to treat solid tumours. An intense, quasi-parallel synchrotron beam is collimated to create microbeams several 10s of μm wide, and separated by 100s of μm. Animal studies...
Real time image guided radiotherapy has been proposed by integrating an in-line 6 MV linear accelerator (linac) to a magnetic resonance (MR) imager in either a parallel or transverse configuration. In either configuration, magnetic interference in the linac is caused by its immersion in the...
