Comparison of Dose Statistics of IMRT Plan from Varian Eclipse Treatment Planning System with Novel Python-Based Indigenously Developed Software

Radiotherapy treatment plan evaluation relies on the implicit estimation of the tumor control probability and normal tissue complication probability arising from a given dose distribution. This pilot study is to reconstruct the Dose Volume Histogram (DVH) graph from the text file generated from the varian medical system developed eclipse treatment planning system to check the integrity and accuracy of the dose statistic. This study is to verify and compare the dose statistic of the intensity modulated radiotherapy of the head and neck from the eclipse software and the indigenously developed software. The dose statistic data obtained from the python software are consistent and deviations are within acceptable limits from the dose statistic of the eclipse treatment planning system. The in-house software also displays the hotness and coldness of the treatment plan and is capable of storing the dose statistic data generated from the software to the oracle database.
