PURPOSE Compressed sensing theory has enabled an accurate, low-dose cone-beam computed tomography (CBCT) reconstruction using a minimal number of noisy projections. However, the reconstruction time remains a significant challenge for practical implementation in the clinic. In this work, we propose a novel gradient projection algorithm, based on the(More)
PURPOSE Understanding motion characteristics of liver such as, interfractional and intrafractional motion variability, difference in motion within different locations in the organ, and their complex relationship with the breathing cycles are particularly important for image-guided liver SBRT. The purpose of this study was to investigate such motion(More)
PURPOSE All forms of past and current high-dose-rate brachytherapy utilize immobile applicators during treatment delivery. The only moving part is the source itself. This paradigm misses an important degree of freedom that, if explored, can in some instances produce previously unachievable dose conformality; that is, the dynamic motion of the applicator(More)
The purpose of this work is to demonstrate an ultra-fast reconstruction technique for digital tomosynthesis (DTS) imaging based on the algorithm proposed by Feldkamp, Davis, and Kress (FDK) using standard general-purpose graphics processing unit (GPGPU) programming interface. To this end, the FDK-based DTS algorithm was programmed "in-house" with C language(More)
PURPOSE To assess the temporal and spatial accuracy of the GateCT™ system (VisionRT, London, UK), a recently released respiratory tracking system for 4DCT, under both ideal and nonideal respiratory conditions. METHODS Three experiments were performed by benchmarking and comparing its results with the ground-truth input data and those generated by the(More)
