Intensity Modulated Radiotherapy (Image 2)

June 25, 2010
Intensity Modulated Radiotherapy (Image 2) An intensity-modulated radiation therapy (IMRT) planning algorithm operates by using the outlines of the prostate and other radiation-sensitive organs in a CT scan to arrive at matrices of beamlet intensities that are delivered from several external angles. This work was supported in part by CenSSIS, the National Science Foundation (NSF) Center for Subsurface Sensing and Imaging Systems, NSF grant EEC 99-86821.
