Synchronized tumour tracking with electromagnetic transponders and kV x-ray imaging: evaluation based on a thorax phantom.

Abstract

Intrafractional organ motion remains a source of error in conformal radiotherapy of dynamic targets such as tumours of the lung or of the prostate. The purpose of this work was to devise a method for the continuous and routine measurement of intrafractional organ motion. The method consists of a combination of an electromagnetic (EM), internal marker-based… (More)
