Intensity-modulated radiation therapy (IMRT), one of the modern radiotherapy techniques, is one of the most common treatments for cancer. IMRT technique can deliver higher doses to tumor and reduces the minimum dose to normal tissue. Because IMRT technique is more complex than the 3D-CRT techniques, IMRT is potential to underdose the tumor and overdose the nearby critical structures. The American Association of Physicists in Medicine (AAPM) published the TG119 report, including tests and the quality assurance QA process with the aim of to assessing the overall accuracy of planning and delivery of IMRT treatments. The purpose of this research was to study and apply TG119 to evaluate the Prowess Panther planning (TPS) system for JO-IMRT plan at Dong Nai General Hospital with 4 test cases of TG119. Four test cases of TG119 were carried out on the Prowess Panther planning (TPS) system the obtained results were compared to those results of other authors. The results showed that only the prostate plan met 100% of the dose requirements prescribed by TG119, the other plans were relatively appropriate and still met most of the requirements of TG119. From these results, we concluded that Prowess Panther was a good for JO-IMRT.
