Segmentation of Biological Target Volumes on Multi-tracer PET Images Based on Information Fusion for Achieving Dose Painting in Radiotherapy

Abstract

Medical imaging plays an important role in radiotherapy. Dose painting consists in the application of a nonuniform dose prescription on a tumoral region, and is based on an efficient segmentation of biological target volumes (BTV). It is derived from PET images, that highlight tumoral regions of enhanced glucose metabolism (FDG), cell proliferation (FLT… (More)
