Summary of "Characterization of a Bayesian network based radiotherapy plan verification model."

The current process for radiotherapy treatment plan quality assurance (QA) relies on human inspection of treatment plans, which is time-consuming, error prone and oft reliant on inconsistently applied professional judgements. A previous proof-of-principle paper describe the use of a Bayesian network (BN) to aid in this process. This work studied how such a BN could be expanded and trained to better represent clinical practice.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Radiotherapy given to augment some other form of treatment such as surgery or chemotherapy. Adjuvant radiotherapy is commonly used in the therapy of cancer and can be administered before or after the primary treatment.

Statistical formulations or analyses which, when applied to data and found to fit the data, are then used to verify the assumptions and parameters used in the analysis. Examples of statistical models are the linear model, binomial model, polynomial model, two-parameter model, etc.

The total amount of radiation absorbed by tissues as a result of radiotherapy.

Theoretical models simulating behavior or activities in nursing, including nursing care, management and economics, theory, assessment, research, and education. Some examples of these models include Orem Self-Care Model, Roy Adaptation Model, and Rogers Life Process Model.
