Develop resources for external users of PLanUNC
Goal: provide PLanUNC source code to any researcher who wants to enhance it for their own radiotherapy experiments.
PlanUNC is a radiation therapy treatment planning software system that has been under development in the Department of Radiation Oncology at the University of North Carolina (UNC) for more than fifteen years. PLanUNC has an established record as an exportable research platform but resources to support external users are lacking. The overall aim of this project is to provide PlanUNC, enhanced with a suite of integrated software tools from the rich image analysis research environment at UNC, as a freely available, fully documented and supported, open and extensible treatment planning research platform for investigating new techniques and methods for image-guided radiotherapy treatment simulation and delivery.
