  3. 3. The Potential of Intra-fraction Monitoring of Patient Anatomy Using a Parameterized Motion Model

    University essay from Umeå universitet/Institutionen för fysik

    Author : Maya Staneva; [2019]
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : Radiotherapy aims to strike a tumour with high accuracy, but anatomic changes and internal organ motion introduce uncertainties and therefore large margins are conventionally used to compensate for this. The MR-Linac will enable target tracking prior to and during treatment which will make daily adjustments of a treatment plan possible. READ MORE

    Author : Lina Welander; [2019]
    Keywords : Multi-label classification; MIQA; INCA; Deep neural network;

    Abstract : An initiative to standardize the nomenclature in Sweden started in 2016 along with the creation of the local database Medical Information Quality Archive (MIQA) and a national radiotherapy register on Information Network for CAncercare (INCA). A problem of identifying the clinical tumor volume (CTV) structures and prescribed dose arose when the consecutive number, which is added to the CTV-name, was made inconsistently in MIQA and INCA.
