Abstract: Plan quality is often assessed using dose volume histograms (DVHs), which are a high level representation of a dose distribution. Clinical quality DVHs can be accurately predicted, however their corresponding treatment plans are more challenging to determine. We present an inverse optimization model that can produce treatment plans from DVH curves, with minimum treatment complexity. The model is applied to several clinical head and neck treatment plans, and the outcomes are compared to their corresponding clinical plans.

Snacks and refreshments will be provided. Hope to see you there!
