PET fused images to delineate GTVs PET fused images to delineate CTVs • There was an adequate level of agreement between the volumes delineated by using PET and MRI based fusions for contouring. • It can be hypothesized that inclusion of PET based abnormality while delineating the target volumes for GBM will lead only to moderate increase in the treated volumes of brain. • Treating this combined volume (X here) might prove benefecial in terms of reduced marginal recurrences. • The study of… CONTINUE READING
