BACKGROUND Clinical data indicates that delivery of larger daily doses of radiation may improve the therapeutic ratio for prostate cancer compared to conventional fractionation. A phase II study of stereotactic body radiotherapy with real-time motion management and daily plan re-optimization for low to intermediate risk prostate cancer was undertaken to(More)
Purpose: To build a model that will predict the survival time for patients that were treated with stereotactic radiosurgery for brain metastases using support vector machine (SVM) regression. Methods and Materials: This study utilized data from 481 patients, which were equally divided into training and validation datasets randomly. The SVM model used a(More)
An intensity based six-degree image registration algorithm between cone-beam CT (CBCT) and planning CT has been developed for image-guided radiation therapy (IGRT). CT images of an anthropomorphic chest phantom were acquired using conventional CT scanner and corresponding CBCT was reconstructed based on projection images acquired by an on-board imager(More)
