PURPOSE To investigate the clinical use of a commercially available gating system for minimizing respiratory-induced anatomic motion over a range of treatment sites. METHODS AND MATERIALS The gating system consists of a reflective marker placed on the patient's anterior surface. The motion of the marker is tracked using a camera interfaced to a computer. Gated intervals were defined that limited the motion of the diaphragm to less than 1 cm during free breathing. Patients underwent a computed… CONTINUE READING
