VMAT Treatment Plan Deliverability

Objective Volumetric Modulated Arc Therapy (VMAT) is a recent radiation therapy technique that delivers the calculated required radiation dose continuously as the treatment machine rotates. The advantage of this technique is that it more accurately shapes the radiation dose to the tumour and hence minimises the dose given to the organs surrounding the tumour avoiding damage […]

Automated Plan Checking

Objective For a given radiotherapy treatment plan type (e.g. prostate, breast, head & neck, etc), explore the use of an ‘unsupervised’ AI training process to determine the properties of a correct treatment plan. Once trained, the system can determine whether a new treatment plan, which it has not previously seen, looks correct and, perhaps give […]

Using Constraint Solvers for Model Composition

As modern systems become more complex, design approaches model different aspects of a system separately to gain a better understanding of individual component structure and behaviour. It is widely recognised that modelling the complete behaviour of a component is difficult, and instead we model several possible scenarios of execution separately. Scenarios give a partial behaviour […]
