Geometric leaf placement strategies.
Geometric leaf placement strategies for multileaf collimators (MLCs) typically involve the expansion of the beam's-eye-view contour of a target by a uniform MLC margin, followed by movement of the leaves until some point on each leaf end touches the expanded contour. Film-based dose-distribution measurements have been made to determine appropriate MLC margins--characterized through an index d90--for multileaves set using one particular strategy to straight lines lying at various angles to the...Expand abstract
