BACKGROUND Implementation of cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) in frameless stereotactic body radiotherapy (SBRT) of lung tumours enables setup correction based on tumour position. The aim of this study was to compare setup accuracy with daily soft tissue matching to bony anatomy matching and evaluate intra- and inter-fractional translational and rotational errors in patient and target positions. MATERIAL AND METHODS Fifteen consecutive SBRT patients were included in the study. Vacuum… CONTINUE READING
