PURPOSE The efficiency and precision of respiratory gated radiation therapy for tumors is affected by variations in respiration-induced tumor motion. We evaluated the use of individualized and population-based parameters for such treatment. METHODS AND MATERIALS External respiratory signal records and images of respiration-induced tumor motion were… CONTINUE READING
