           write      inspect 

Purpose

Handles computation and export of dose-volume histograms.

Parameters

file
File name prefix for export.
import()
Not yet implemented.
export(fmt)
Exports current DVH's. At present only gd is foreseen, to be plotted with the gd program. Naming convention: <file>dvh.gd,
read
Not yet implemented.
write
Not yet implemented.
list
Not yet implemented.
display
Not yet implemented.
inspect
Not yet implemented.
calculate
Triggers DVH calculation, by default with respect to the absorbed dose. If biological is specified, the biological dose distribution is selected. Note that valid VOIs must exist.
biological
Selects biological dose distribution.
svv
Selects survival distribution.
rbe
Selects RBE distribution.
alpha
Selects alpha distribution.
beta
Selects beta distribution.
specdose
Selects absorbed dose distribution obtained from sampling of particle spectra.
meanlet
Selects mean LET distribution.
dosemeanlet
Selects dose-mean LET distribution.
debug
Debug switch. Lots of output !

Remark

Output in gd format contains comment lines with additional "figures of merit":

Examples

  1.  dvh xyz / calculate bio export(gd)
    
    Calculates and exports the biological dose volume histogram in file xyz.dvh.gd
  2.  dose "clp021102.svv.dos"  /read svv
     dvh  "clp021102" / calculate svv export(gd)
    
    Reads the specified survival distribution and exports the associated DVH in clp021102.dvh.gd
