We are implementing the use of magnetic resonance (MR) images for head and neck radiotherapy planning, which involves their registration with computed tomography (CT). The quality assurance (QA) of the registration process was an initial step of this program. A phantom was built, and appropriate materials were identified to produce clinically relevant MR T1 and T2 contrast for its constituent "anatomy". We performed a characterization of the distortion detectable within our phantom. Finally, we… CONTINUE READING
