Image fusion, target localization, and setup accuracy of cone-beam computed tomography (CBCT) for stereotactic radiosurgery (SRS) were investigated in this study. A Rando head phantom rigidly attached to a stereotactic Brown-Roberts-Wells (BRW) frame was utilized to study the geometric accuracy of CBCT. Measurements of distances and angular separations between selected pairs of multiple radio-opaque targets embedded in the head phantom from a conventional simulation CT provided comparative data… CONTINUE READING
