The method Erasmus-iCycle is able to generate a treatment plan for cancer patients, based on the patient's anatomy and a predefined wish list. This wish list contains goals for different organs near the tumour, listed by priority. However, it is not certain that the generated iCycle plan is the best fit for an individual patient, since every...

Nowadays around 50% of all patients diagnosed with cancer are treated with radiotherapy. Radiotherapy uses ionizing beams to irradiate the tumour. This radiation damages and destroys cells, such that it is impossible for this cell to grow and divide. When the tumour is irradiated, the surrounding healthy tissues gets damaged as well. The goal is...

When a patient is diagnosed with cancer, a number of treatments is possible. About half of these patients is treated with radiotherapy. This is a multi-disciplinary field of research, where mathematics, physics and medicine come together. In this thesis the focus will lie on prostate cancer. One of the main problems with this type of cancer is...

Measuring the temperature distribution inside the rotary kilns, using thermocouples for instance has proven to be difficult due to the harsh operating conditions of the kiln. Numerical modelling of turbulent combustion and the associated physical phenomenon thus proves to be an indispensable tool towards predicting the kiln operating conditions....

Radiotherapy is one of the main treatments for cancer, and a multi-disciplinary field of research, mostly involving medicine, physics and mathematics. The focus of this thesis lies in improvements for the treatment planning, which is a multi-criteria process. We have been constructing a new method to form the Pareto front for certain objectives....

Radiotherapy treatment planning involves solving inequality constrained minimization problems. The currently used interior point solver performs well, but is considered relatively slow. In this thesis we investigate two different solvers based on the logarithmic barrier method and Sequential Quadratic Programming (SQP) respectively. We argue...

Treatment plan generation in radiation therapy is a multicriteria optimization problem, in which multiple, often conflicting, criteria need to be optimized simultaneously. Several methods can be used to obtain Pareto optimal treatment plans, meaning that no criterion can be improved without deteriorating another criterion. The focus is on the 2...

Radiation therapy is a form of therapy for cancer treatments, where ionizing radiation is used to eradicate malignant cells. The patient is treated with a device called a linear particle accelerator. It contains a source, from which photons are emitted. Constructing an optimal treatment plan for radiation therapy involves optimising the angles...

For multi-criteria optimization of radiation therapy treatment planning, several methods can be used. One method, the 2-phase ?-constraint method, is to optimize each criterium, one at a time, to find an optimal radiation plan. The disadvantage of this method is that it takes a lot of computation time. The purpose of this thesis is to...

Hyperthermia is a cancer treatment in which tumours are heated. This makes them more vulnerable to other cancer treatments like radiotherapy and chemotherapy. In this report we search for a way to improve the tumour coverage. Here the tumour coverage is how much of the tumour is heated.

Hyperthermia, heating of tissue, is a method of cancer treatment. Due to dispositioning of the patient, the treatment will not be optimal. In this thesis we try to correct for such errors. This bachelorproject was performed at the Hyperthermia Unit of the Erasmus Medical Centre.

Een promovendus bij DIAM is bezig om de deformaties van de prostaat preciezer te modelleren, en alleen de echt voorkomende deformaties mee te nemen in de optimalisering van het bestralingsplan. Het is de verwachting dat kwetsbare organen in de buurt van de prostaat meer ontzien kunnen worden dan met uniforme marges. Bij het bestralen wordt er...
