Stereotactically guided fractionated radiotherapy: technical aspects.


A system for high precision radiotherapy in the head and neck region has been developed. The components of the system are a head mask connected to a stereotactic frame, a localization unit that can be used during CT- and MR-imaging and a stereotactic target positioner. Conformal precision radiotherapy is planned with a new treatment planning system (Voxelplan-Heidelberg). Three different multi-leaf collimator systems are used. An evaluation of the precision and accuracy of the head fixation system, which was performed with a photogrammetry system, is presented.
