This paper surveys the data-driven dose prediction approaches introduced for knowledge-based planning (KBP) in the last decade. These methods were classified into two major categories according to their methods and techniques of utilizing previous knowledge: traditional KBP methods and deep-learning-based methods. Previous studies that required geometric or anatomical features to either find the best matched case(s) from repository of previously delivered treatment plans or build prediction

A comprehensive review of each category is presented, highlighting key parameters, methods, and their outlooks in terms of dose prediction over the years. We separated the cited works according to the framework and cancer site in each category. Finally, we briefly discuss the performance of both traditional KBP methods and deep-learning-based methods, and future trends of both data-driven KBP approaches.
