PURPOSE Accurate contouring of positron emission tomography (PET) functional volumes is now considered crucial in image-guided radiotherapy and other oncology applications because the use of functional imaging allows for biological target definition. In addition, the definition of variable uptake regions within the tumor itself may facilitate dose painting for dosimetry optimization. METHODS AND MATERIALS Current state-of-the-art algorithms for functional volume segmentation use adaptive… CONTINUE READING
