PURPOSE For 23 patients, an off-line positron emission tomography scan and a computed tomography scan after proton radiotherapy was performed at the Massachusetts General Hospital to assess in vivo treatment verification. A well-balanced population of patients was investigated to assess the effect of the tumor location on the accuracy of the technique. METHODS AND MATERIALS Range verification was achieved by comparing the measured positron emission tomography activity distributions with the… CONTINUE READING
