Plan optimisation parameters

Apr 16, 2015 at 6:19 AM
I am trying to constuct a physics checksheet tool for IMRT quality assurance.
Is there a way to get the optimisation parameters of a plan using Eclipse scripting, such as the smoothing parameters or the NTO?

There is ExternalPlanSetup.OptimizationSetup.Parameters, that gives you a list that include OptimizationIMRTBeamParameter (which has SmoothX and SmoothY) and OptimizationNormalTissueParameter. This is starting from version 13.0.

Thanks for this information. My centre has recently upgraded Eclipse from version 11.0 to 13.6 so I will try this out1

The following gives me the smoothing parameters and the normal tissue optimisation parameter:
                    OptimizationSetup osu = context.ExternalPlanSetup.OptimizationSetup;
                    foreach (OptimizationParameter par in osu.Parameters)
                        if (par is OptimizationNormalTissueParameter)
                            OptimizationNormalTissueParameter ntp = par as OptimizationNormalTissueParameter;
                            file.Write("\r\nNTO = {0}", ntp.Priority);
                            file.Write("\r\nOpt Settings = start:{0}%, stop:{1}%, dist from target:{2}mm", ...
                        if (par is OptimizationIMRTBeamParameter)
                            OptimizationIMRTBeamParameter oip = par as OptimizationIMRTBeamParameter;                         
                            file.Write("\r\nBeam {0}: smoothX, smoothY = {1},{2}", oip.BeamId,oip.SmoothX,oip.SmoothY);
