Respiratory and cardiac motions induce displacement and deformation of the tumor-volume in various internal organs. To accommodate this undesired movement and other errors, physicians incorporate a large margin around the tumor to delineate Planning Target Volume (PTV), so that the Clinical Target Volume (CTV) receives the prescribed radiation dose under any scenario. Consequently, a large volume of healthy tissue is irradiated and sometimes it is difficult to spare critical organs adjacent to… CONTINUE READING

Key Quantitative Results

  • Implementation of the proposed technique can potentially improve real-time tracking of the tumor-volume to deliver precise radiation dose at almost 100% duty cycle while minimizing irradiation to health tissues and sparing critical organs.
