Radiation Treatment I The radiation machine deliver beams with different angles to the patients body. I Exposure time of the beam is determined and is called as the intensity. I 2 main techniques are used: conformal therapy (in the shape of tumor), intensity-modulated radiation therapy (region divided into small rectangles). I Region is divided into small rectangles that are called voxel. I Construct intensity matrix for each voxel. A ij of A : Weight of beam j to be applied to voxel i 4 / 23
Optimization in Radiation Therapy I Constructing dose matrix is to plan the theatment in backwards. I 3 different voxels: Target T , critical C , normal N . I For each voxel, objective function coefﬁcients are determined: c T , c N , c C . I Big penalties may be set for normal voxels. 5 / 23
