PURPOSE To evaluate different strategies for proton lung treatment planning based on four-dimensional CT (4DCT) scans. METHODS AND MATERIALS Twelve cases, involving only gross tumor volumes (GTV), were evaluated. Single image sets of (1) maximum intensity projection (MIP3) of end inhale (EI), middle exhale (ME) and end exhale (EE) images; (2) average intensity projection (AVG) of all phase images; and (3) EE images from 4DCT scans were selected as primary images for proton treatment planning… CONTINUE READING
