Development of Graphical User Interfaces (GUI) Software and Databases for Radiation Therapy Applications
Abstract (Summary)This software has been developed for various package including monitor unit calculation programming, TG51, prostate seed implant double check interface, stereotactic radio surgery (SRS) monitor unit calc programming and various query and report windows. This application has diversified package for radiation therapy applications. The main aim of this GUI software is: (a) To develop the software tool for hand calculation for photon and electron beam and compare the results with ADAC planning system. (b) To develop the interfaces for external beam calibration under the basis of TG51 protocol. (c) To find out the dose to arbitrary reference points for prostate seed implant and compare the result to the real time plan. (d) To develop the interface for calculating monitor units as a second check to the SRS. (e) To develop the various reports pertaining to the patient information, monitor unit hand calc application. The results shown on this thesis are close to planning system output. It also checks certain type of restriction and limit. The reports built in this program make lot easier to user finding out the various dosimetry book values in a minute, which also minimize the chance of human error and mathematical error. The record keeping system also mainly focuses on the data verification and saves to the database and can query anytime whenever we need. It is mainly user friendly to those people who want to work on visual environment. Every report and query gives the lot of information and help to reduce the redundancy of the data stored in database.
