Abstract

Tumor motion caused by patient breathing creates challenges for accurate radiation dose delivery to a tumor while sparing healthy tissues. Image-guided radiation therapy (IGRT) helps, but there's a lag time between tumor position acquisition and dose delivered to that position. An efficient and accurate predictive model is thus an essential requirement for IGRT success.
