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!
