Application of Decision Support Systems for Selection of Radiotherapy Methods Breast Cancer Patients

Rafli Filano, Boy Subirosa Sabarguna

Abstract

Radiotherapy is a treatment against malignant tumor or cancer by using ionizing radiation, such as X- rays, gamma rays or high-energy electrons. Radiotherapy methods include 3D-CRT, IMRT, VMAT. Decision-making in the selection of radiotherapy methods in case of breast cancer is unique to each patient so doctors need consideration. Selection of radiotherapy method for breast cancer patients so that it becomes optimal with support of decision support system. Analytical Hierarchy Process's decision support system helps solve complex problems by structuring a hierarchy of criteria, stakeholders, outcomes and displaying considerations to develop possible options. The purpose of this research is the application of AHP-based aids decision system that can be used by doctors as an alternative selection tool from existing radiotherapy methods and educational facilities of prospective doctors in learning about radiotherapy methods in breast cancer patients. The resulting of decision support system is used in the selection of radiotherapy methods in breast cancer patients that greatly assist the physician in selecting decisions. Suggested software applications need to develop step instructions and questions to be more complex and tailored to the condition of patients and hospitals.
