Deriving patient-specific planning target volume for partial bladder image guided radiation therapy.


PURPOSE Image guided radiation therapy (IGRT) using bony anatomy for bladder cancer requires the use of large population-based planning target volume (PTV) margins to compensate for geometric uncertainties. This may result in a large volume of normal tissue being irradiated unnecessarily. Identification of the clinical target volume (CTV) is also a… (More)
