AIM To investigate the clinical application of a technique for patient set-up verification in breast cancer radiotherapy based on a 3D surface image registration system. BACKGROUND Accurate and reproducible patient set-up is a prerequisite to correctly deliver fractionated radiotherapy. Various approaches are available to verify and correct patient setup for 3D image acquisition in a radiation treatment room. MATERIALS AND METHODS The study analyzed the setup reproducibility of 15 patients… CONTINUE READING
