Progress in 3 d treatment planning for photon beam therapy chin lm siddon rl svensson gk rose c the purpose of this report is to study the feasibility of improving dose distributions using non coplanar photon beams from a linear accelerator. With the 2 d systems in this report practical guidelines for the qa of a 3 d treatment planning system tps are formulated in order to help the clinics in the design of their qa procedures the subject of the report is restricted to conventional treatment planning for external photon and electron beam therapy. This type of treatment technique requires a three dimensional 3 d planning system clinical examples are used to illustrate the general problems in 3 d treatment planning and the potential improvement over coplanar beam treatments features of a treatment planning system for 3 d planning are discussed.
