Multi-leaf collimator constrained optimization of intensity modulated treatments

Multi-leaf collimator constrained optimization of intensity modulated treatments

Official Gazette of the United States Patent & Trademark Office Patents 1246(5), May 29

A system and method for radiation therapy delivery. The present invention provides for optimizing radiation delivery by accounting for the physical attributes of a beam shielding device (401) when determining an optimal radiation treatment. These include, for example, constraining the optimization engine with realizable positioning of plates and/or collimator leaves. Thus, an optimal set of fields and intensity levels for those fields are chosen.
