Automated algorithm for CBCT-based dose calculations of prostate radiotherapy with bilateral hip prostheses.

Abstract

OBJECTIVE Cone beam CT (CBCT) images contain more scatter than a conventional CT image and therefore provide inaccurate Hounsfield units (HUs). Consequently, CBCT images cannot be used directly for radiotherapy dose calculation. The aim of this study is to enable dose calculations to be performed with the use of CBCT images taken during radiotherapy and… (More)
