Development of treatment planning algorithm for the discrete spot scanning system

R. Fujimoto, S. Fujitaka & K. Hiramoto
Background: The spot scanning method makes it possible to produce various dose distributions flexibly by modulating weights of thousands of spots. In the discrete spot scanning system, the process for planning irradiation parameters has three steps, 1) Select spot positions, 2) Optimize weights (MU)[for full text, please go to the a.m. URL]
