The recent development of integrated computed tomography (CT)/linear accelerator (LINAC) combinations, where the CT scanner and the LINAC use the same patient couch, and of kilovoltage cone-beam CT systems attached to the LINAC gantry, means that suitable hardware is now available for CT-guided localization of the prostate. Clinical implementation is, however, currently impeded by the lack of robust and accurate software tools to compare the position of the prostate in the CT images used for… CONTINUE READING
