In external beam radiotherapy (EBRT), patient setup verification over the entire course of fractionated treatment is necessary for accurate delivery of a specified dose to the tumor. We are working on the development of a minimax entropy registration framework for patient setup verification using dual portal images and the treatment planning 3D CT dataset. In this paper, we present an overview of our registration framework, where an iteratively and automatically estimated segmentation of the… CONTINUE READING
