    Sammanfattning : Treatment planning for radiation therapy inherently involves tradeoffs, such as between tumor control and normal tissue sparing, between time-efficiency and dose quality, and between nominal plan quality and robustness. The purpose of this thesis is to develop methods that can facilitate decision making related to such tradeoffs. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Dosimetric effects of breathing motion in radiotherapy

    Detta är en avhandling från Lund University, Faculty of Science, Department of Medical Radiation Physics

    Författare :Anneli Edvardsson; [2018-09]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; radiotherapy; breathing motion; DIBH; interplay effects; VMAT; proton therapy; breast cancer; Hodgkin’s lymphoma; liver; dosimetry; treatment planning; medical physics;

    Sammanfattning : The goal of radiotherapy is to deliver a homogeneous high dose of radiation to a tumour while minimising the dose to the surrounding healthy tissue. To achieve this, increasingly advanced treatment techniques, such as volumetric modulated arc therapy (VMAT) and proton therapy, have been developed. LÄS MER

  3. 3. 3D Verification of Dynamic and Breathing Adapted Radiotherapy using Polymer Gel Dosimetry

    Detta är en avhandling från Lund University (Media-Tryck)

    Författare :Sofie Ceberg; [2010]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; radiotherapy; 3D verification; polymer gel;

    Sammanfattning : Polymer gel dosimetry has been used since the 1990s, and several studies have shown that this detector system can be used for verification of static absorbed dose distributions in three dimensions (3D). Its unique properties, such as high resolution, normal tissue equivalence and independency of energy, field size and direction of the incident radiation, should also be advantageous for dosimetric verification of radiotherapy using today’s and tomorrow’s dynamic delivery techniques.
