Statistics-Based Prediction Analysis for Head and Neck Cancer Tumor Deformation
Journal of Healthcare Engineering
Most of the current radiation therapy planning systems, which are based on pre-treatment Computer Tomography (CT) images, assume that the tumor geometry does not change during the course of treatment. However, tumor geometry is shown to be changing over time. We propose a methodology to monitor and predict daily size changes of head and neck cancer tumors during the entire radiation therapy period. Using collected patients' CT scan data, MATLAB routines are developed to quantify the progressivedoi:10.1260/2040-22188.8.131.521 fatcat:cqbzpgxvq5fbnlttmsolhw6hgi
