Quantitative assessment of target volume contouring in radiotherapy treatment planning is an important aspect of quality assessment and educational exercises. The Conformity Index (CI) is a volume-based statistic frequently used for this purpose. Although the CI is relatively simple to understand and can be calculated using most treatment planning systems, it does not provide any information on the differences in shape between the two volumes. We present a new morphometric (shape-based… CONTINUE READING
