Increased accuracy of planning tools for optimization of dynamic multileaf collimator delivery of radiotherapy through reformulated objective functions

23 Oct 2018 Engberg Lovisa Eriksson Kjell Forsgren Anders

The purpose of this study is to examine in a clinical setting a novel formulation of objective functions for intensity-modulated radiotherapy treatment plan multicriteria optimization (MCO) that we suggested in a recent study. The proposed objective functions are extended with dynamic multileaf collimator (DMLC) delivery constraints from the literature, and a tailored interior point method is described to efficiently solve the resulting optimization formulation...
