An essential ingredient in radiotherapy is the calculation of the dose to be delivered to the patient. Analytical algorithms are commonly used for such a task, however their accuracy is not always satisfactory. Monte Carlo techniques provide higher accuracy, but they often require large computational times. Track-repeating algorithms, for example the Fast Dose Calculator, have […]

Performance of a treatment planning system is an essential factor in making sophisticated plans. The dose calculation is a major time-consuming process in planning operations. The standard algorithm for proton dose calculations is the pencil beam algorithm which produces relatively accurate results, but is time consuming. In order to shorten the computational time, we have […]

An essential component in proton radiotherapy is the algorithm to calculate the radiation dose to be delivered to the patient. The most common dose algorithms are fast but they are approximate analytical approaches. However their level of accuracy is not always satisfactory, especially for heterogeneous anatomic areas, like the thorax. Monte Carlo techniques provide superior […]
