Cone-beam CT (CB-CT) based image-guidance was evaluated for extracranial stereotactic radiotherapy of intrapulmonary tumors. A total of 21 patients (25 lesions: prim. NSCLC n = 6; pulmonary metastases n = 19) were treated with stereotactic radiotherapy (1 to 8 fractions). Prior to every fraction a CB-CT was acquired in treatment position, errors between planned and actual tumor position were measured and corrected. Intra- and inter-observer variability of manual evaluation of tumor position… CONTINUE READING
