Title:
A virtual simulator designed for collision prevention in proton therapy. 
Abstract:
In proton therapy, collisions between the patient and nozzle potentially occur because of the large nozzle structure and efforts to minimize the air gap. Thus, software was developed to predict such collisions between the nozzle and patient using treatment virtual simulation.Three-dimensional (3D) modeling of a gantry inner-floor, nozzle, and robotic-couch was performed using SolidWorks based on the manufacturer's machine data. To obtain patient body information, a 3D-scanner was utilized right...    »
