3D dose visualization for evaluation of radiosurgical treatment plans

Abstract

In radiotherapy, a visual representation of the dose distribution can be used to evaluate the qualityof treatment plans. Recent treatment systems use a large number of small beams to shape regions of high dose conformal to the tumors outline, and the use of 3D techniques has be reported for Gamma-Knife dose planning [1]. We present a tool for 3D visualization of treatment plans for roboticradiosurgery, where non-isocentric beams of small diameter can be directed towards arbitrary pointswithin the target. The best 3D voxel representation and the effect of individual beams are studied.
