Workstations, Radiotherapy, Planning

Definition : Radiotherapy workstations designed to optimize the calculation of the expected radiation energy (dose) distributions within patients from both external sources of radiation (teletherapy) and implanted sources (brachytherapy). These workstations typically consist of a computer, software for dosage calculation, and input and output devices (e.g., keyboards, monitors, printers) for graphic and alphanumeric data. Radiotherapy planning workstations usually follow the instructions of appropriate software that enables clinicians to choose the best combination of radiation beams and modalities for eradicating tumors while reducing radiation-related complications in healthy tissue. They are used mainly for treatment of cancer and related diseases.
