Various types of motion and deformation the lung undergoes during minimally invasive tumor ablative procedures, e.g. Low Dose Rate (LDR) brachytherapy, have been investigated and modeled in this dissertation. Modeling such motions and deformations are highly necessary for enhancing the accuracy of lung’s Minimally Invasive Surgery (MIS). This necessity stems from the fact that due to its porous structure, which is associated with its millions of tiny alveoli, the lung is the most deformable… CONTINUE READING
