Workpackage 3

Biological adaptive treatment planning in the presence of advanced techniques

Partners Karolinska Institute (Stockholm) and RaySearch (Stockholm) are collaborating in this workpackage in which algorithms for biologically optimised treatment planning will be developed aimed at tumour eradication with minimal normal tissue damage.  These algorithms will be based on interim PET scans and recurrence patterns in the two clinical trials which will be carried out during this project on lung cancer and cancer of the head and neck.  The algorithm will be an add-on module in a treatment planning system, estimating the accumulated dose and patient-specific treatment response, making it possible to replan and where necessary biologically adapt the treatment.
