E-IMRT

Services

MonteCarlo methods for treatment verification. They accurately model the interaction of radiation with matter and are the dominant standard in dose calculation techniques. They achieve more accurate results than convolution/superposition methods, at a higher computational cost. Although forthcoming achievements may render Monte Carlo a valid near-real-time treatment planning alternative, it currently plays an outstanding role as a validation technique. Therefore, the eIMRT platform will use it to verify the results of commercial treatment planning systems for any kind of radiotherapy plan of external photon beams.

CRT optimization algorithms. New web services will implement an open access point to exhaustive yet computationally intensive IMRT and CRT optimization algorithms based on mixed Monte Carlo C/S dose computation algorithms, which will produce optimized treatment plans of a quality (in terms of dose conformation and organ sparing) hardly achievable with commercial TPS.

Finally, there is a joint effort of the groups involved in this project to establish an international public data repository with anonimyzed CT scans, treatments and other relevant information, which may be useful in the future to reproduce results, mine knowledge and train specialists.
