Mayo 2017 Craniopharyngioma Proton Plan Study Results

Categories PlanningPosted on

Below are tables summarizing the high performers for the 2017 Mayo Craniopharyngioma Proton Plan Study. The first table shows a full list of High Performers, which in this case were taken to be any/all participants who submitted plans with a quality score of 130.0 or higher. The subsequent tables are organized by High Performers (< 4 beams), plans that were very efficient/practical and used 3 treatment beams or fewer), High Performers by Treatment Planning System (TPS), and then “In-Development” Treatment Planning Systems (new systems or versions of existing systems not yet clinical).
