A generic method for three-dimensional (3-D) evaluation of target volume delineation in multiple imaging modalities is presented. The evaluation includes geometrical and statistical methods to estimate observer differences and variability in defining the Gross Tumor Volume (GTV) in relation to the diagnostic CT and MRI modalities. The geometrical method is(More)
BACKGROUND Plan adaptation during the course of (chemo)radiotherapy of H&N cancer requires repeat CT scanning to capture anatomy changes such as parotid gland shrinkage. Hydration, applied to prevent nephrotoxicity from cisplatin, could temporarily alter the hydrogen balance and hence the captured anatomy. The aim of this study was to determine geometric(More)
PURPOSE To establish the reproducibility of the MRI-defined spinal cord position within the spinal canal. MATERIALS AND METHODS We acquired T1- and T2-weighted MRI scans of 15 volunteers on spine levels C7, T8 or L2. The scan protocol was repeated several times for different postures and time intervals. We determined the spinal cord shift (LR, AP, CC)(More)
Objectives : To evaluate diffusion-weighted imaging (DWI) with low b factors of the peripheral zone (PZ) of patients with prostatic cancer. Materials and methods : An EPI diffusion MR sequence (TE = 75 ms, TR = 4000 ms, slice thickness = 4 mm), with low diffusion factors incremented by 10 s/mm 2 , has been developed on a 1.5 T magnet. Axial T2-weighted(More)
