Multi-Criteria Optimization (MCO) is a new and upcoming way to quickly create and assign radiotherapy treatment plans to patients. How does it compare clinical treatment plans? MCO allows the user to adjust various treatment plans that the computer has created based on upper and lower dose limits. Varian, the program that houses MCO treatment plans, has an easy to use interface to determine the best individualized plans for each cancer patient. Clinical treatment planning may take longer than MCO-generated plans, with possible inconsistent and suboptimal quality.
