Three-dimensional conformal radiotherapy allows the use of tightly conformed, multiple coplanar or noncoplanar beams. However, visualizing the spatial relationships between the target volume and adjacent critical structures is not always obvious or intuitive. Tools such as beam's eye view (BEV) have aided in this process and been very useful. In this study, a target-eye-view (TEV) map is developed as a functional extension of BEVs. The TEV map for a critical structure is created by checking the… CONTINUE READING
