PURPOSE To assess the validity of gated radiotherapy of lung by using a cross-check methodology based on four-dimensional (4D)-computed tomography (CT) exams. Variations of volume of a breathing phantom was used as an indicator. METHODS AND MATERIALS A balloon was periodically inflated and deflated by a medical ventilator. The volume variation (DeltaV) of the balloon was measured simultaneously by a spirometer, taken as reference, and by contouring 4D-CT series (10 phases) acquired by the… CONTINUE READING
