A patent application (Publication Number: US20240001148A1) describes a method for adaptive radiotherapy treatment planning for patients. The method involves receiving a sequence of measurement data captured at different time points, including historical data and current treatment data in the form of two-dimensional images. This data is mapped to a representation of the treatment geometry, which is then used in a dynamical model to estimate the positions of the treatment geometry over time. Based on this estimation, the method determines if a change in position meets certain criteria and decides on a treatment action for the patient at a future time point.

Furthermore, the method includes executing the treatment action at the defined future time point, using a control policy to minimize average cost over future time points. The treatment action involves calculating the dose to be delivered to the patient based on the estimation from the dynamical model and adapting the treatment plan accordingly. The process also involves using machine learning models, such as neural networks, in various stages of the method, including mapping measurement data, estimating positions over time, and determining treatment actions. Overall, the method aims to improve adaptive radiotherapy treatment planning by utilizing dynamic models, machine learning, and cost optimization strategies to deliver personalized and effective treatment plans for patients.
