Monitor Unit Calculation in Intensity Modulated Radiation Therapy


Stanford Reference:

99-138


Abstract


The purpose of this invention is to provide a simple and efficient method for Monitor Unit ("MU") calculation for intensity modulated radiation therapy (IMRT). Using the dose/MU and the transmission dose/MU of the contributing beamlets, the MU calculation for the treatment planning system is readily and efficiently obtained.

Applications


  • Intensity Modulated Radiation Therapy

Advantages


  • Independent of leaf sequence algorithms and delivery machines
  • Rapid dose formulation for clinical use
