Treatment Planning

Having a treatment plan is an important part of radiation therapy. This channel page includes news and new technology innovations for treatment plans.

proton treatment planning, prostate

This proton treatment plan created with the Varian Eclipse software illustrates how protons interact with a patient's tissues in a prostate cancer case. The red shows the delivery of the protons to the target where the maximum amount of energy is deposited in the patient. To deliver protons on target, CT scans are used to determine the proton stopping power of the tissues the beam passes through to determine the proton velocity needed.
