  Treatment plans designed with 3-D dose planning systems, using any type of beam arrangement (3-D unconstrained plans), were compared to plans with typical beam configurations that are used in day-to-day practice in the clinic (3-D standard plans); these latter beam arrangements (although not the beam aperture) were derived from treatment planning experience without the benefit Cited by:   Three-dimensional treatment planning for the intact breast was performed on two patients who had undergone CT scanning. A total of 38 treatment plans were evaluated. Multiple plans were evaluated for each patient including plans with and without inhomogeneity corrections, plans using varying photon energies of 60 Co, 4 MV, 6 MV, 10 MV, and 15 MV, and three-dimensionally unconstrained by: Three-dimensional treatment plan optimization (improvement) methods.

Oak Brook, IL: Radiological Society of North America, pp. 47–Cited by: 4.   The role of three-dimensional (3-D) treatment planning in the definitive treatment of carcinoma of the larynx with radiation was evaluated at four institutions as part of an NCI contract. A total of 30 different treatment approaches were devised for two patients with larynx cancer.

Semin Radiat Oncol 2(4)– PubMed CrossRef Google Scholar Purdy JA (a) 3-D radiation treatment planning: a new era. The purpose of this work is to compare the photon dose calculation of a commercially available three‐dimensional (3D) treatment planning system based on the collapsed cone convolution technique against BEAM, a Monte Carlo code that allows detailed simulation of a radiotherapy accelerator. The first part of the work is devoted to the commissioning of BEAM for a 6 MV photon .   The role of three-dimensional (3-D) treatment planning in the definitivetreatment of carcinoma of the larynx with radiation was evaluated at fourinstitutions as part of an NCI contract. A total of 30 different treatmentapproaches were devised for two patients with larynx cancer. Treatment planning is a never-ending stream of therapeutic plans and interventions. It is always moving and changing. I have cowritten a thorough treatment planning book and computer program that should make treatment planning easy: The Addiction Treatment Planner(Perkinson & Jongsma, a, b). The planner comes in two forms, as a book and.
