A column generation based approach to treatment plan optimization for Volumetric Modulated Arc Therapy

Abstract


In this talk, We study the treatment plan optimization problem for Volumetric Modulated Arc Therapy (VMAT).

We propose a new column generation based algorithm that takes into account bounds on the gantry speed and dose rate, as well as an upper bound on the rate of change of the gantry speed, in addition to MLC constraints.
