Abstract : The goal of this project is to develop an online adaptive treatment technique for prostate cancer treatments. During the first year, we have developed parallel deformable image registration, parallel dose calculation and plan optimization algorithms. During the second year, we have been focusing on improving the robustness of the algorithms and improving online image quality.
