Abstract

This study describes the development and evaluation of an auto-segmentation tool for the left anterior descending coronary artery (LAD), on non-contrast planning computed tomography scans of breast cancer patients. The dosimetric parameters of the auto-segmented LAD contours are highly correlated with those of manual contours (R2-values 0.89). (C) 2019 Elsevier B. V. All rights reserved.
