  • Abstract : In radiotherapy treatment, is it possible to vary the radiation intensity, achieving a dose distribution with superior compliance. An individualized treatment plan comprises information on how the dose is distributed within a patient. The dose distribution problem translates into optimizing the total radiation dose applied to the patient. Fuzzy optimization is used to deal with inaccurate prescription. Interior point methods are applied to determine optimal solutions with less dose distribution in critical organs.
