Large-scale improvement of radiation treatment of cancer patients
The worldwide applied, largely manual method for generation of treatment plans often results in suboptimal radiation treatment. Possible consequences are severe treatment complications or a reduced tumour control probability. In this project, mathematical methods will be developed to enable large- scale application of automated generation of high-quality treatment plans.
This project increases availability of high-quality radiotherapy to large groups of patients, as rapid deployability of automated treatment planning is essential for adoption by commercial parties and incorporation in hospitals.
