At present, commercially available treatment planning systems (TPS) only offer manual planning functionality for cone-based stereotactic radiosurgery (SRS) leading to labor intensive treatment planning. Our objective was to reduce treatment planning time through development of a simple inverse TPS for cone-based SRS.

Development of MRI sequences and processing methods for the production of images appropriate for direct use in stereotactic radiosurgery (SRS) treatment planning.
Inverse planning is an integral part of modern low-dose-rate (LDR) brachytherapy. Current clinical planning systems do not exploit the total dose information and largely use the AAPM TG-43 dosimetry f...
Stereotactic registration for deep brain stimulation surgery is often performed after halo placement on an MRI or CT with fiducials. Cone-beam computed tomography scanners (CBCT) have been used for le...
The aim of this study was to evaluate the efficacy of stereotactic radiosurgery (SRS) and fractionated stereotactic radiotherapy (fSRT) as salvage therapy for recurrent high-grade glioma and to look a...
The International Commission on Radiation Units and Measurements (ICRU) report 91 with the title "prescribing, recording, and reporting of stereotactic treatments with small photon beams" was publish...
The hypotheses of the study are as follows: - Mass-based inverse optimization in radiotherapy treatment planning will result in a reduction of normal tissue and organs at risk (OA...
RATIONALE: Stereotactic radiation therapy may be able to send x-rays directly to the tumor and cause less damage to normal tissue. PURPOSE: This phase I/II trial is studying the side effe...
This phase I/II trial studies the side effects and best dose of stereotactic body radiation therapy while using intensity-modulated radiation therapy (IMRT) planning to help avoid radiatio...
RATIONALE: CT scans and treatment-planning systems may help in planning radiation therapy for patients with non-small cell lung cancer. PURPOSE: This clinical trial is studying image-guid...
To demonstrate that radiotherapy treatments for bladder cancer can be delivered with greater accuracy using a new planning method and that this method can be used simply and effectively by...
A treatment program based on manipulation of the patient's environment by the medical staff. The patient does not participate in planning the treatment regimen.
Photosensitive proteins expressed in the CONE PHOTORECEPTOR CELLS. They are the protein components of cone photopigments. Cone opsins are classified by their peak absorption wavelengths.
