  1. 1. STANDARDIZED ORGAN AT RISK VOLUME FOR EXTERNAL BEAM RADIATION THERAPY IN PROSTATE CANCER AND ITS RELATIONSHIP TO VOLUMES DEFINED BY CLINICAL PRACTICE

    University essay from

    Author : Dang Thao; [2022-01-13]
    Keywords : Medical physics; Radiation therapy; Prostate cancer; Organs at risk;

    Abstract : Background/Purpose:In radiation therapy (RT), the radiation dose calculated in tumours and normal tissue depends on how the volumes are defined. It is difficult to standardize how tumour volumes should be defined because their anatomical extension can differ greatly between individuals. READ MORE

  2. 2. COMPARISON OF MULTI-CRITERIA OPTIMIZATION IN TWO DIFFERENT TREATMENT PLANNING SYSTEMS

    University essay from

    Author : Anna Lindström; [2021-05-10]
    Keywords : Medical physics; Multi-criteria optimization; Pareto front; volumetric modulated arc therapy; head and neck cancer; prostate cancer;

    Abstract : Purpose: The purpose with this study was to compare multi-criteria optimization (MCO) for volumetric modulated arc therapy (VMAT) treatment plans in two different treatment planning systems. Theory: When performing treatment planning prior to radiation therapy it is important to prioritize between absorbed dose to target and absorbed dose to organs at risk (OAR). READ MORE
