Abstract

The capabilities of the Eclipse treatment planning system (TPS) (Varian Medical Systems, Palo Alto, CA) for proton therapy treatment planning are described. Various steps involved in the planning process to produce a 3-dimensional (3D) dose distribution both for the passive scattering and pencil beam scanning proton beam therapy are outlined. Mitigation of range and setup uncertainties through robust optimization is discussed. Use of verification plans for patient treatment field dosimetry quality assurance (QA) is presented. Limitations of the Eclipse TPS and future developments are discussed.
