FDA 510(k) cleared in May of 2000, RadCalc's IMRT utility allows the user to perform an independent MU or point calculation for Step and Shoot and Sliding Window IMRT treatment plans.

The IMRT computation is performed utilizing a modified Clarkson scatter integration along with a Head Scatter algorithm to improve accuracy. The MLC leaf sequence patterns can be imported into RadCalc through various mechanisms. The computation is then performed using this information.

The algorithm utilized by RadCalc was published in the October 2000 issue of the Medical Physics Journal. "A monitor unit verification calculation in intensity modulated radiotherapy as a dosimetry quality assurance" J. H. Kung, G. T. Y. Chen, and F. K. Kuchnir pp. 2226-2230. This article details the computation algorithm utilized by RadCalc. Since publication of this article, the algorithm utilized has been updated to further improve accuracy.
