Clinical Challenge

 

Advanced planning methods in adaptive radiotherapy facilitate more precise radiation delivery to patients. Precise observation and control of the therapy progress is required for successful treatments. Information on the current status, potential deviations from the treatment plan, changes of tissue structures, and other indicators for re-planning must be evaluated by the clinician throughout the treatment period. Preparing this information from available data and presenting it effectively helps to establish a more efficient clinical workflow.
