Tomotherapy-like versus VMAT-like treatments: a multicriteria comparison for a prostate geometry.

Abstract:

PURPOSE: To perform a methodological comparison of volumetric modulated arc therapy (VMAT)-like and tomotherapy-like techniques for a prostate geometry, exploring the dependence on machine, delivery, and optimization parameters of cost function values optimized for each technique. METHODS: A gradient-descent algorithm is used to optimize tomotherapy-like treatments, while VMAT-like optimization is carried out using a direct-aperture simulated annealing algorithm with 180 control points equis...
