PURPOSE Predicting complex patterns of respiration can benefit the management of the respiratory motion for radiation therapy of lung cancer. The purpose of the present work was to develop a patient-specific, physiologically relevant respiratory motion model which is capable of predicting lung tumor motion over a complete normal breathing cycle. METHODS(More)
Prediction of respiratory motion has the potential to substantially improve cancer radiation therapy. A nonlinear finite element (FE) model of respiratory motion during full breathing cycle has been developed based on patient specific pressure-volume relationship and 4D Computed Tomography (CT) data. For geometric modeling of lungs and ribcage we have(More)
