Abstract: The design of a mechatronic system for conformal radiotherapy, based on the use of a robot, is described in this work. In particular, this paper analyzes the design and the implementation of a module of the system, namely the one that computes the amount of radiations to be emitted by each source. The optimization algorithm that solves the problem is described, and several tests done to validate the algorithm are presented.
