Cancer is the second cause of death in USA with estimated deaths of 570,000 in 2010. In USA, about 2/3 of cancer patients are treated with radiotherapy since it has proven a particularly effective treatment for many cancer types. Radiation is generated by a medical linear accelerator mounted on a gantry that can deliver the radiation to the patient’s body from various orientations with optimized intensity profiles of the x-ray beams (Fig-1).
