Predicting personalised optimal arc parameter using knowledge-based planning model for inoperable locally advanced lung cancer patients to reduce organ at risk doses (2021)
Journal Article
Tambe, N. S., Pires, I. M., Moore, C., Wieczorek, A., Upadhyay, S., & Beavis, A. W. (2021). Predicting personalised optimal arc parameter using knowledge-based planning model for inoperable locally advanced lung cancer patients to reduce organ at risk doses. Biomedical Physics and Engineering Express, 7(6), https://doi.org/10.1088/2057-1976/ac2635

Objectives. Volumetric modulated arc therapy (VMAT) allows for reduction of organs at risk (OAR) volumes receiving higher doses, but increases OAR volumes receiving lower radiation doses and can subsequently increasing associated toxicity. Therefore,... Read More about Predicting personalised optimal arc parameter using knowledge-based planning model for inoperable locally advanced lung cancer patients to reduce organ at risk doses.

Validation of in-house knowledge-based planning model for predicting change in target coverage during VMAT radiotherapy to in-operable advanced-stage NSCLC patients (2021)
Journal Article
Wieczorek, A., Tambe, N. S., Pires, I. M., Moore, C., Wieczorek, A., Upadhyay, S., & Beavis, A. W. (2021).

Biomedical Physics and Engineering Express, 7(6), https://doi.org/10.1088/2057-1976/ac1f94

Objectives. anatomical changes are inevitable during the course of radiotherapy treatments and, if significant, can severely alter expected dose distributions and affect treatment outcome. Adaptive radiotherapy (ART) is employed to maintain the plann...

Validation of in-house knowledge-based planning model for advance-stage lung cancer patients treated using VMAT radiotherapy (2020)
Journal Article
Tambe, N., Pires, I. M., Moore, C., Cawthorne, C., & Beavis, A. (2020). Validation of in-house knowledge-based planning model for advance-stage lung cancer patients treated using VMAT radiotherapy. British Journal of Radiology, 93(1106), https://doi.org/10.1259/bjr.20190535

Objectives: Radiotherapy plan quality may vary considerably depending on planner's experience and time constraints. The variability in treatment plans can be assessed by calculating the difference between achieved and the optimal dose distribution. T...
