Title
(EN) METHOD AND APPARATUS TO FACILITATE GENERATING A DELIVERABLE THERAPEUTIC RADIATION TREATMENT PLAN
Abstract
(EN)

In the context of a multi-criteria optimization workspace, a control circuit provides a user opportunity to modify radiation treatment plan optimization objective values, wherein the optimization objectives include at least one of a radiation treatment plan complexity optimization objective and a radiation treatment delivery time optimization objective. These teachings then provide for the control circuit receiving input from the user comprising a change to at least one of these optimization objective values. By one approach the control circuit first accesses a prioritized list of clinical goals and automatically generates optimization objectives as a function of the prioritized list of clinical goals. The control circuit then generates a seed optimized radiation treatment plan as a function of the automatically generated optimization objectives and subsequently generates a collection of different radiation treatment plans by varying the automatically generated optimization objectives to thereby characterize a trade-off exploration space for the multi-criteria optimization workspace.
