Summary:
Listen in as Varian Clinical Technical Support Specialist Lisa Nelesen discusses normal tissue objective (NTO) and autoNTO specifically.  The NTO specifies dose-to-normal tissue without having to create physical ring structures.  Introduced with Eclipse™ treatment planning system v. 10, AutoNTO offers a way to control dose in normal tissue without entering fall-off parameters.  This feature works with IMRT, VMAT, or any optimized plan.  Lisa has found this gem to be under-utilized because users often fail to understand the value of the tool and use it to its full potential.
