The use of PET images for radiotherapy treatment planning: an error analysis using radiobiological endpoints.

Abstract:

PURPOSE: There is significant current interest in the use of biological image guidance in radiotherapy planning. In lung-cancer treatment, tumor motion due to respiration is known to be a limitation. This is particularly true in PET, where image data are collected over a number of minutes. An in-house-developed 4D PET acquisition mode is described and an analysis of the effects of acquisition parameters on the reconstructed image quality is presented. The potential impact of the resulting bio...
