Acuros XB for dose calculations in external beam photon radiotherapy-mini review
Dose calculations based on Monte Carlo (MC) often require sophisticated treatment planning stations with long processing time, and this could be issue for many cancer centers. Hence, most of the commercial treatment planning system include faster dose calculation engines for the daily clinical routine. Due to advancement in technology and computing power, it is now possible to implement MC based dose calculation algorithms in the clinical environment. This report summarizes the major findings of various researchers who have investigated Acuros XB algorithm, which is the MC based dose calculation algorithm commercially available for dose calculations in radiotherapy.
