Health Systems Research Seminar Series presents: "Stochastic Optimization of the Scheduling of a Radiotherapy Center"

Friday, September 23, 2016, 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.

Radiotherapy centers can improve their efficiency by optimizing the utilization of the linear accelerators. We propose an online method to schedule patients on such machines taking into account their priority, the maximum waiting time, and the preparation of this treatment (dosimetry). We have implemented a genetic algorithm and a constraints program, which schedule the dosimetry. This approach ensures the beginning of the treatment on time and thus avoids the cancellation of treatment sessions.
