Interfractional anatomic variation in patients treated with respiration-gated radiotherapy.

Abstract

As quality assurance for respiration-gated treatments using the Varian RPM system, we monitor interfractional diaphragm variation throughout treatment using extra anterior-posterior (AP) portal images. We measure the superior-inferior (SI distance between one or more bony landmarks and the ipsilateral diaphragm dome in each such radiograph and calculate its… (More)
