RTC is a radiation therapy program the performance of which is essentially organized in two areas:
- the complete and detailed input of a radiation therapy course with all pertinent data, such as: fraction number, single dose, fractionation pattern, but also deviations from the basic scheme, like: cancelled sessions, modified single doses, breaks, etc. The prediction of therapy duration, the postponement of a therapy, consideration of holidays, maintenance days, etc. also belong to this section.
- the calculation of the biologically effective dose from the data entered in 1., separately for the tumour and for late effects. Additional functions fall into this area, especially the comparison of two therapies from a biological point of view, the determination of an equivalent therapy under given conditions, the display of results, etc.
