The impact of breathing motion versus heterogeneity effects in lung cancer treatment planning

Domenii publicaţii > Fizica + Tipuri publicaţii > Articol în revistã ştiinţificã

Editorial: Medical Physics, 34, 4, p.1462-1473, 2007.

Rezumat:

The purpose of this study is to investigate the effects of tissue heterogeneity and breathing-induced motion/deformation on conformal treatment planning for pulmonary tumors and to compare the magnitude and the clinical importance of changes induced by these effects. Given a properly designed ITV, tissue heterogeneity effects are likely to have a larger clinical significance on tumor and normal lung treatment evaluation metrics than four-dimensional respiratory-induced changes.
