Benefits of six degrees of freedom for optically driven patient set-up correction in SBRT.

Abstract

To quantify the advantages of a 6 degrees of freedom (dof) versus the conventional 3- or 4-dof correction modality for stereotactic body radiation therapy (SBRT) treatments. Eighty-five patients were fitted with 5-7 infra-red passive markers for optical localization. Data, acquired during the treatment, were analyzed retrospectively to simulate and evaluate… (More)
