Online imager detects deformable motion

    Pers / media: OnderzoekPopular

    Description

    Organ motion can adversely impact any dynamic radiotherapy delivery and is particularly problematic for spot-scanned proton therapy. The magnetically deflected pencil beam used for spot scanning does, however, lend itself to the implementation of tumour tracking, considered the optimal method for mitigating motion. Unfortunately, there still remains the fundamental challenge of accurately determining target motion during treatment.
