BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Conebeam-CT (CBCT) guidance is often used for setup verification of lung cancer patients treated with radiotherapy. The purpose of this study was to quantify intra-thoracic anatomical changes (ITACs) during the radiotherapy treatment and to hand over a decision support system to guide the radiation therapy technologist and radiation oncologist in prioritizing these changes. MATERIALS AND METHODS 1793 CBCT-scans of 177 lung cancer patients treated in 2010 in our… CONTINUE READING
