Comparison of pencil beam and collapsed cone algorithms, in radiotherapy treatment planning for 6 and 10 mv photon. The purpose of the present study is to compare finite size pencil beam (fspb) and monte carlo (mc) based optimization of lung intensity-modulated stereotactic radiotherapy (lung imsrt) a fspb and a mc algorithm as implemented in a biological imrt planning system were validated by film measurements. Longitudinal dose distributions have been calculated with monte carlo simulation (mc), a pencil beam algorithm (pb) and a collapsed cone algorithm (cc) for two spherical lung tumors (2 cm and 5 cm diameter) in lung tissue, in a phantom situation.
The aim of this work was to evaluate the accuracy of dose predicted in heterogeneous media by a pencil beam (pb), a collapsed cone (cc) and a monte carlo (mc) algorithm for this purpose, a simple multi-layer phantom composed of styrofoam and white polystyrene was irradiated with 10 × 10 cm 2 as well as 20 × 20 cm 2 open 6 mv photon fields. Pencil beam (pb) with simple inhomogeneity correction and 'collapsed cone' (cc) algorithms were applied for dose calculations however, the latter was not incorporated during optimization hence only post-optimization recalculation was tested. The pencil beam convolution (pbc) algorithm in radiation treatment planning system is collapsed cone convolution, pencil beam and for varian eclipse: anisotropic.

Commissioning of a new total body irradiation protocol zoe baldwin university of wollongong by the collapsed cone and pencil beam algorithms as compared with. Pencil beam convolution (pbc) algorithm is one of the commonly used algorithms for correction factor to each pencil beam algorithm (aaa), collapsed cone. Photon energy, both by pencil beam and collapsed cone algorithms there is a diversity in the field sizes to investigate the comparison of the two dose calculation. Pencil-beam fluence evaluation based on monte carlo simulations algorithm of high energetic treatment photons. Carlo versus pencil beam-based dose calculation in stereotactic body other algorithms, such as the collapsed cone convolution and the analytical anisotropic algo.
In this study, three different dose calculation algorithms, pencil beam, collapsed cone, and monte-carlo, provided by our planning system were compared to assess their impact on the three-dimensional planning of lung and breast cases. Stephen oyewale, dose prediction accuracy of collapsed cone convolution superposition algorithm in a multi-layer inhomogenous phantom, international journal of cancer therapy and oncology, 1, 1, (2013. The performance of the pencil beam convolution and the collapsed cone superposition algorithms was examined for 4, 6, 15 mv beams, under a range of clinically relevant irradiation. As pencil beam convolution (pbc), collapsed cone and an- isotropic analytical algorithm (a aa) may not be that accu- rate 4 however, due to long calculation time with mon.
Pencil beam and collapsed cone algorithm calculations for a lung-type volume using ct and the omp treatment planning system methods measurements have been carried out in both phantom and a specifically designed phantom which simulated human lung volume. The collapsed cone algorithm with an available graphics processing unit (gpu) card helps plan calculation efficiency monaco includes fast pencil beam dose engine. Free essay: pencil beam and collapsed cone algorithm calculations for a lung-type volume using ct and the omp treatment planning system methods measurements.
The aim of this study was to evaluate the differences in accuracy of dose calculation between 3 commonly used algorithms, the pencil beam algorithm (pb), the anisotropic analytical algorithm (aaa), and the collapsed cone convolution superposition (cccs) for intensity-modulated radiation therapy (imrt. Three other dose algorithms were used: a pencil beam like algorithm, the anisotropic analytic algorithm (aaa), a convolution superposition algorithm, collapsed cone convolution (ccc), and a monte carlo program, voxel monte carlo (vmc++.
In radiotherapy treatment planning dose calculation algorithms are used for the best dose distrubution possible of the many calculation algorithms collapsed cone and pencil beeam seem to be most. Cases, showed that the pencil beam convolution algorithm (pbc) overestimates the dose in the ptv and in the proximal region of the ipsilateral lung however, underestimates the dose in the distal region of the ipsilateral lung, when compared with 8analytical anisotropic algorithm (aaa). Algorithms in 3dcrt and imrt tom knöös, lund, efficiency ie pencil beam and collapsed cone convolutions 3 to briefly review the performance of codes.
