A new optimization model for brachytherapy dose plans

Coauthors: Åsa Carlsson Tedgren, Torbjörn Larsson


There are many types of radiotherapy, brachytherapy is one such. As a part of treatment planning, a dose plan needs to be constructed, this decides where and for how long to irradiate. Optimization of dose plans for brachytherapy is still an area that is relatively unexplored, and since the treatment is quite different, models used for external radiotherapy are not directly applicable. In this talk I will highlight the most important differences and then present the model we have formulated and some results from our tests. Our model differs from others used in the brachytherapy field by more directly including dosimetric indices.
