Abstract

3-D treatment planning has received a great deal of attention in the radiation therapy community over the last several years. This new technology makes use of the continuous improvements in computer hardware and graphics capabilities, along with major improvements in treatment planning software, to provide a fully three dimensional simulation of the patient, radiation beams, and dose distributions which are used forradiation therapy of various cancers. With these capabilities, the physician and treatment planner may now optimize the radiation beams used to treat the patient much more effectively than in the past, when only a limited description of the patient, beams, and doses was available. This paper describes several of the new capabilities of these 3-D planning systems, some research studies which are currently being performed to evaluate the usefulness of the new technology, and finally some of the costs associated with its implementation.
