Treatment Planning

Treatment planning computers are specialized platforms to calculate dosages to patients from linear accelerator treatment machines and isotopes used in treatment. Specialty systems are designed to be used for stereotactic treatment systems (SRS) and high dose rate isotope delivery systems (HDR).

Medical physicists are required at the research and manufacturer level to develop the algorithms used in the calculation process. In the field, medical physicist input measured data used by the planning system to calculate the dosage.

Furthermore, the physicist will insure the validity of the results obtained when using the system. Often, the physicist will specify the constraints on the use of the data, so that the use of the system will provide accurate results.
