Abstract


The purpose of this study is to compare some different dosimetric tools applications of professional software such as XiO with other non professional methods. XiO treatment planning system (TPS) provided by ELEKTA is one of the most important professional software used in radiotherapy. TPS plays an important role in the treatment of patients in radiotherapy. TPS system provides a way to design treatment plans, which aim optimal distribution of the prescribed dose to the target volume (tumour bed) and save as much as possible normal tissue or organs at risk (OAR) structure surrounding the tumour. We used MATLAB as a scientific and research environment to demonstrate the possibilities that this software gives in radiotherapy, especially in quality assurance (QA). MATLAB is a high-level language and interactive environment for numerical computation, visualization, and programming. Using MATLAB, we can analyze data, develop algorithms, and create models and applications such CERR (Computational Environment for Radiotherapy Research) and DREES (Dose Response Explorer System). These modules are customized for modelling and exploring dose response in radiation oncology. Various analytical and graphical features are embedded to facilitate navigation and analysis of complex radiobiological interactions and their relationships with treatment outcomes.

Keywords: Radiotherapy, dosimetry, XiO treatment planning system, MATLAB, dose distribution, beam modeling.
