Use of megavoltage cine-images for studying intra-thoracic motion during radiotherapy for locally advanced lung cancer.

Abstract:

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: Use of planning 4-dimensional CT (4DCT) scans often permits use of smaller target volumes for thoracic tumors but this assumes a reproducible pattern of motion during radiotherapy. We compared cranio-caudal (CC) motion on MV cine-images acquired during treatment with that seen on planning 4DCT. METHODS AND MATERIALS: A pre-programmable respiratory motion phantom and a software tool for motion assessment were used to validate the use of MV cine-images for motion detect...
