In this paper, we present the eIMRT project which is currently carried out by diverse institutions in Galicia (Spain) and the USA. The eIMRT project will offer radiotherapists a set of algorithms to optimize and validate radiotherapy treatments, both CRT- and IMRT-based, hiding the complexity of the computer infrastructure needed to solve the problem using GRID technologies. The new platform is designed to be independent from the medical accelerator models, scalable and open. Having a web portal as client, it is designed in three layers using web services, which will allow users to access the platform directly from any front-end and client. It has three main components, namely remote characterization of linear accelerators for Monte Carlo and convolution/superposition (C/S) dose-calculation techniques, remote Grid-enabled radiotherapy treatment planning optimization and verification and data depository.
