Key Investigators

  • MGH: Greg Sharp, Maxime Desplanques
  • PMH: Kevin Wang


We are developing an external-beam proton dose calculation module for 3D Slicer.

Approach, Plan

Make edits to plastimatch and SlicerRT codes to implement aperture definition, range compensator definition, and SOBP optimization code and return resulting calculation to Slicer.


  • Read SlicerRT contour as labelmap - Done
  • Create aperture and range compensator - Done
  • Display aperture and range compensator in Slicer - Done
  • Generate optimal SOBP - TODO
  • Generate dose in Slicer - TODO
