Radiation therapy has been highly advanced as image guided radiation therapy (IGRT) by making advantage of image engineering technologies. Recently, novel frameworks based on image engineering technologies as well as machine learning technologies have been studied for sophisticating the radiation therapy. In this review paper, the author introduces several(More)
A computerized framework for monitoring four-dimensional (4D) dose distributions during stereotactic body radiation therapy based on a portal dose image (PDI)-based 2D/3D registration approach has been proposed in this study. Using the PDI-based registration approach, simulated 4D "treatment" CT images were derived from the deformation of 3D planning CT(More)
A new harmonic termination that controls the waveform of the drain current to be rectangular is developed for high-efficiency power amplifier modules. Its harmonic termination is a short circuit at the third harmonic and a non-short circuit at the second harmonic. It is found experimentally and confirmed by simulation that the load-matching condition at the(More)
PURPOSE The setup errors and organ motion errors pertaining to clinical target volume (CTV) have been considered as two major causes of uncertainties in the determination of the CTV-to-planning target volume (PTV) margins for prostate cancer radiation treatment planning. We based our study on the assumption that interfractional target shape variations are(More)
PURPOSE The aim of this study was to investigate the impacts of tissue inhomogeneity on dose distributions using a three-dimensional (3D) gamma analysis in cervical intracavitary brachytherapy using Monte Carlo (MC) simulations. METHODS MC simulations for comparison of dose calculations were performed in a water phantom and a series of CT images of a(More)
