Stability of endoscopic ultrasound-guided fiducial marker placement for esophageal cancer target delineation and image-guided radiation therapy.

Abstract

PURPOSE Fiducial markers have been integrated into the management of multiple malignancies to guide more precise delivery of radiation therapy (RT). Fiducials placed at the margins of esophageal tumors are potentially useful to facilitate both RT target delineation and image-guided RT (IGRT). In this study, we report on the stability of endoscopic… (More)
