Intensity modulated radiotherapy (IMRT) and volumetric modulated arc therapy (VMAT) treatment plan generation is a complex process, traditionally performed manually by medical physicists or specialist dosimetrists. Manual methods can be time consuming and dependent on the treatment planner’s experience [1]. A solution to this problem is automated planning, where high [...]

Approximately 170,000 patients are diagnosed with brain metastases in the United States annually [1]. Nearly 50% of these patients are now treated with stereotactic radiosurgery (SRS) due to preserved cognition and quality of life compared to whole brain radiotherapy (WBRT) [2,3]. Additionally, survival has improved due to more efficacious systemic [...]

Bone metastases frequently occur in metastatic cancer patients and the spine is a common site of tumor spread [1]. Palliative radiation therapy (RT) is an effective therapy for painful spinal metastases [2]. Stereotactic body radiation therapy (SBRT) to the spine has been implemented in the last decade as a highly [...]

Meningiomas represent 13–26% of all symptomatic primary brain tumours and are considered benign in 90% of the cases [1]. For treatment of meningiomas several options are available, including observation, surgical resection and external beam radiotherapy. Generally, radiotherapy (RT) is used when surgery is not feasible, or in case of a [...]
