Organ motion should be taken into account for image-guided fractionated radiotherapy. A deformable segmentation and registration method was developed for inter-and intra-fraction organ motion planning and evaluation. Energy minimizing active models were synthesized for tracking a set of organs delineated by regions of interest (ROI) in radiotherapy treatment. The initial model consists of a surface deformed to match the ROI contour by geometrical properties, following a heat flow model. The… CONTINUE READING
