PURPOSE To evaluate the patient positioning accuracy in radiotherapy using a stereo-time of flight (ToF)-camera system. METHODS A system using two ToF cameras was used to scan the surface of the patients in order to position them daily on the treatment couch. The obtained point clouds were registered to (a) detect translations applied to the table… CONTINUE READING
