Incorporation of biological factors in radiation therapy treatment planning

Abstract:

Radiation therapy plays a crucial role in the treatment of cancer. Major developments in the field, including 3D tomographic imaging, intensity modulation and novel particle modalities, have all contributed to iterative improvements in precise dose delivery. These advances have enabled highly conformal tumouricidal dose deposition with improved healthy tissue sparing. Proton therapy, in particular, has become an increasingly adopted modality due to its favourable depth-dose profile, allowi...
