Treatment Planning


When you have finished with the simulation, your radiation oncologist and other members of the treatment team review the information they received during simulation, along with your previous medical tests, to develop a treatment plan.

The treatment planning CT scan your had at your simulation is used in treatment planning. This CT scan is in addition to your diagnostic CT scan.

Sophisticated treatment-planning computer software is used to help design the best possible treatment plan.

After reviewing all of this information, your doctor will write a prescription which outlines exactly how much radiation you will receive and to what parts of your body.
