nCOV and S D . The normalized composite objective value nCOV (top) and the quality index S D (bottom) for topologies A, B, C vs. number of beams (# beams). (A) spherical OAR; (B) cylindrical OAR; (C) banana-shaped OAR. The plans were optimized using pure fluence optimization (Fluence) and DMPO for maximum 120 segments (120 S) and 64 segments (64 S), respectively. Compared are the results from four techniques: (a) quasi-isotropic non-coplanar (Q4π), (b) beams arranged in two orthogonal planes (2P), (c) coplanar (Co; reference), (d) coplanar + 1 orthogonal beam (Co + 1)
