NCI Radiotherapy Treatment Planning Tools
The RTPT project was a collaborative working group of three
participants, at the University of North Carolina, the University of
Washington and Washington University, St. Louis. The material here is
about work on the NCI Tools Contract that was done at the University
Several reports and papers were written for the contract.
We recommend reading the ASTRO '93 paper first.
The Planning Target Volume Tool
The Planning Target Volume Tool (PTVT)
was developed at UW. Further information is available on acquiring
the PTVT tool and supporting documentation.
The UW Foundation Implementation
A Foundation library is required in order to run any Tool from the NCI
Tools Contract. At the University of Washington we implemented a C
version of the Foundation interface specification and a Common Lisp
version. This was done to support tools written in either C or Lisp,
both ANSI standard languages and both part of the RTPT standard. The
source code for both the C and Lisp implementations is in
a gzipped tar file.
