Abstract: A new technique is introduced to model (internal) radiation therapy. It is founded on morphological processing, in particular distance transforms. Its formal basis is presented as well as its implementation via the fast exact Euclidean distance (FEED) transform. Its use for all variations of internal radiation therapy is described. In a benchmark FEED proved to be truly exact as well as faster than a comparable technique. In particular, this 100% accuracy can be of crucial importance for radiation therapy purposes as the balance between maximization of treatment effect and doses that cause unwanted damage to health tissue is fragile. Through the modeling technique presented here this balance can be secured.
