Respiratory-correlated (4D) X-ray CT scans produce a set of images corresponding to different phases of a patient’s breathing cycle. In external beam radiotherapy, information about a tumor’s motion due to respiration can be used to optimize a treatment plan, provided the patient can be accurately aligned for treatment. Cone-beam CT (CBCT) systems are becoming widespread on treatment linac units and are used to aid in alignment. This thesis describes the implementation of respiratory-correlated… CONTINUE READING
