PURPOSE: To review real-time 3-dimensional (3D) image guided radiation therapy
(IGRT) on standard-equipped cancer radiation therapy systems, focusing on
clinically implemented solutions.
METHODS AND MATERIALS: Three ...
The desire to utilise soft-tissue image guidance at the time of radiation
treatment has led to the development of several hybrid magnetic resonance imaging
(MRI) linear accelerators (linacs). These systems have the ...
PURPOSE: Four-dimensional cone beam computed tomography (4DCBCT) facilitates
verification of lung tumor motion before each treatment fraction and enables
accurate patient setup in lung stereotactic ablative body radiation ...

High precision conformal radiotherapy requires sophisticated imaging techniques
to aid in target localisation for planning and treatment, particularly when organ
motion due to respiration is involved. X-ray based imaging ...
PURPOSE: Lung functional image guided radiation therapy (RT) that avoids
irradiating highly functional regions has potential to reduce pulmonary toxicity
following RT. Tumor regression during RT is common, leading to ...
