Abstract

The goal of radiation therapy is to give as much dose as possible to the exact target location and minimizing any dose to a normal tissue. Advances of Cyber-physical control systems allow planning and provide very accurate treatments. However, the current technology does not sufficiently compensate a respiratory movement that is especially important in case of lung (area) cancer. In this paper we present a model of radiation treatment system developed to analyze a system that compensates respiratory motion. We use Uppaal, an integrated tool environment for modeling, validation and verification of real-time systems modeled as networks of timed automata, extended with data types (bounded integers, arrays, etc.).
