    Introduction to Optimization in Radiation Therapy

    • Dionne Aleman, prés., University of Toronto

    In this hands-on tutorial, the basics of radiation therapy treatment planning techniques will be discussed. Specifically, optimization methods to design external beam radiotherapy plans (e.g., optimal beam placement, radiation intensity, etc.) will be presented. There are numerous competing theories on the appropriateness of various approaches to radiotherapy optimization in the literature, and the merits and challenges of each approach will be examined. Participants will gain an understanding of a broad range ideologies regarding radiotherapy optimization techniques.
