Remote site treatment planning was one of the earliest methods of digital computer dose planning. Using batch-oriented or time-sharing mainframe computer systems, researchers in the late 1950s and early 1960s developed many of the basic algorithms used later in stand-alone systems. Although time-shared systems have continued in use, most of the emphasis on treatment planning in the last decade has been on using dedicated mini- and micro-computer systems. Recent developments in the computer industry, such as the use of networks and distributed computer processing, may lead to a resurgence of interest in remote computer systems for treatment planning.
