Intensity Modulated Radiotherapy is a new technique enabling the sculpting of the 3D radiation dose. It enables to modulate the delivery of the dose inside the malignant areas and constrain the radiation plan for protecting important functional areas. It also raises the issues of adequacy and accuracy of the selection and delineation of the target volumes. The delineation in the patient image of the tumor volume is highly time-consuming and requires considerable expertise. In this paper we… CONTINUE READING
