There are many alternative ways of incorporating CT information into a treatment planning program as shown in Fig. IV.11. Of these, the most reasonable method is to transfer the CT scan information directly into an existing treatment planning system using a reading from a magnetic storage medium. For a facility without any computerized treatment planning system, the most attractive alternative is a treatment planning system on the CT scanner itself (McCullough 1978).
