Definition of the margin of major coronary artery bifurcations during radiotherapy with electrocardiograph-gated 4D-CT.
PURPOSE The aim was to measure the cardiac motion-induced displacements of major coronary artery bifurcations utilizing electrocardiography (ECG)-gated four-dimensional computed tomography (4D-CT)Expand
Quantification of heart, pericardium, and left ventricular myocardium movements during the cardiac cycle for thoracic tumor radiotherapy
Purpose The purpose of this study was to quantify variations in the heart, pericardium, and left ventricular myocardium (LVM) caused by cardiac movement using the breath-hold technique. Patients andExpand
Heart and Cardiac Substructure Dose Sparing in Synchronous Bilateral Breast Radiotherapy: A Dosimetric Study of Proton and Photon Radiation Therapy
Background: Synchronous bilateral breast cancer (SBBC) is rare. The purpose of this study was to compare the dosimetric differences in intensity-modulated radiation therapy (IMRT),Expand
Quantification of variation in dose–volume parameters for the heart, pericardium and left ventricular myocardium during thoracic tumor radiotherapy
Abstract Cardiac activity can induce dose–volume evaluation errors for cardiac structures. The purpose of this study was to quantify the variation in dose–volume parameters for the heart, pericardiumExpand
Impact of deformable image registration on dose accumulation applied electrocardiograph-gated 4DCT in the heart and left ventricular myocardium during esophageal cancer radiotherapy
BackgroundThe deformable image registration (DIR) technique has the potential to realize the dose accumulation during radiotherapy. This study will analyze the feasibility of evaluating dose-volumeExpand
The heterogeneous CTV-PTV margins should be given for different parts of tumors during tomotherapy
Objective The purpose of this study was to evaluate CTV-PTV margins of tumors for tomotherapy. Methods Setup errors were analyzed for 151 patients receiving helical tomotherapy treatment. 53 patientsExpand
Analysis of the evaluation errors of dose-volume parameters for left ventricular myocardium in esophageal cancer radiotherapy
Objective To evaluate the dynamic variation of the dose-volume parameters of the left ventricular myocardium following heart beat in radiotherapy for esophageal cancer. Methods The leftExpand
Comparison of the dose on specific 3DCT images and the accumulated dose for cardiac structures in esophageal tumors radiotherapy: whether specific 3DCT images can be used for dose assessment?
BackgroundCardiac activity could impact the accuracy of dose assessment for the heart, pericardium and left ventricular myocardium (LVM). The purpose of this study was to explore whether it isExpand
