Target localization and verification of the treatment position is important for the accurate delivery of conformal radiotherapy. The bladder in particular is a deformable structure whose shape and position continually varies throughout a course of radiation treatment as a result of bladder filling. We report a novel technique of organ localization using gold seeds as fiducial markers that are implanted into the bladder using a specially adapted applicator that is passed through a rigid… CONTINUE READING
