In this study, 14 treatment planning dose parameters for head and neck cancer are adopted as the characteristic functions to establish the statistical analysis of the fuzzy system module for radiation treatment plan classification. By constructing fuzzy rules and fuzzy set membership functions, we aim to improve the classification efficiency and accuracy by the fuzzy systems, and to improve the quality of the treatment plan. Three different fuzzy logic control systems were used for analysis of 100 Pinnacle treatment planning system datasets. The results show that the accuracy may be up to 100%. The fuzzy logic control system we propose may be a useful tool for accurate planning and decision-making.
