Novel Monte Carlo dose calculation algorithm for robotic radiosurgery with multi leaf collimator: Dosimetric evaluation.

At introduction in 2014, dose calculation for the first MLC on a robotic SRS/SBRT platform was limited to a correction-based Finite-Size Pencil Beam (FSPB) algorithm. We report on the dosimetric accur...

Clinical evaluation for the difference of absorbed doses calculated to medium and calculated to water by Monte Carlo method.

To evaluate the difference of absorbed doses calculated to medium and to water by a Monte Carlo (MC) algorithm based treatment planning system (TPS), and to assess the potential clinical impact to dos...

Evaluation of quantitative 123I and 131I SPECT with Monte Carlo-based down-scatter compensation.

Quantitative I and I single-photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) is hampered by down-scatter from the high-energy peaks. This paper presents a down-scatter compensation method, where down-scatt...

Evaluation of the ray-casting analytical algorithm for pencil beam scanning proton therapy.

For pencil beam scanned (PBS) proton therapy, analytical dose calculation engines are still typically used for the optimisation process, and often for the final evaluation of the plan. Recently howeve...

Log file based Monte Carlo calculations for proton pencil beam scanning therapy.

Patient specific quality assurance is crucial to guarantee safety in proton pencil beam scanning. In current clinical practice, this requires extensive, time consuming measurements. Additionally, thes...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

In statistics, a technique for numerically approximating the solution of a mathematical problem by studying the distribution of some random variable, often generated by a computer. The name alludes to the randomness characteristic of the games of chance played at the gambling casinos in Monte Carlo. (From Random House Unabridged Dictionary, 2d ed, 1993)

Non-invasive method of demonstrating internal anatomy based on the principle that atomic nuclei in a strong magnetic field absorb pulses of radiofrequency energy and emit them as radiowaves which can be reconstructed into computerized images. The concept includes proton spin tomographic techniques.

An internationally recognized set of published rules used for evaluation of cancer treatment that define when tumors found in cancer patients improve, worsen, or remain stable during treatment. These criteria are based specifically on the response of the tumor(s) to treatment, and not on the overall health status of the patient resulting from treatment.

The individual's objective evaluation of the external world and the ability to differentiate adequately between it and the internal world; considered to be a primary ego function.

Studies determining the effectiveness or value of processes, personnel, and equipment, or the material on conducting such studies. For drugs and devices, CLINICAL TRIALS AS TOPIC; DRUG EVALUATION; and DRUG EVALUATION, PRECLINICAL are available.
