Non-coplanar VMAT treatment can achieve better organ-at-risk (OAR) avoidance by orienting the radiation beams in a different geometric plane relative to the patient. However, determining the optimal set of beam orientations is challenging due to the additional degrees of freedom. The objective of this study was to use Simulated Annealing (SA) for b...
Thesis

Non-coplanar VMAT has the potential to treat tumors that are located in close proximity of critical organs or that are partially surrounded by normal tissues. The use of dynamic couch-gantry trajectories offers an opportunity for more precise and accurate delivery of radiation during cancer treatments.Despite the improvements that have been seen in...

In this paper, we present a simulator that has been developed using Gazebo and ROS to study cable-driven parallel robots. Real-time dynamic simulation of such robots is an efficient approach to develop new control laws that may integrate various sensors. The limitations of Gazebo are dealt with, as we model the cables under tension as massless U-P̲...
