INTRODUCTION The purpose of this study was to investigate coplanar and non-coplanar volumetric modulated arc therapy (VMAT) delivery techniques for stereotactic ablative radiation therapy (SABR) to the lung. METHODS For ten patients who had already completed a course of radiation therapy for early stage lung cancer, three new SABR treatment plans were… (More)
Commentary is provided in the context of current practices for calculating radiation therapy margins and future directions that will impact on this.
INTRODUCTION Time-consuming manual methods have been required to register cone-beam computed tomography (CBCT) images with plans in the Pinnacle(3) treatment planning system in order to replicate delivered treatments for adaptive radiotherapy. These methods rely on fiducial marker (FM) placement during CBCT acquisition or the image mid-point to localise the… (More)
In images with low contrast-to-noise ratio (CNR), the information gain from the observed pixel values can be insufficient to distinguish foreground objects. A Bayesian approach to this problem is to incorporate prior information about the objects into a statistical model. This paper introduces a method for representing spatial prior information as an… (More)
