Towards automated brachytherapy film implant labeling using statistical pattern recognition
Proceedings of IEEE Symposium on Computer-Based Medical Systems (CBMS)
This paper presents a new approach towards automating the identification and labeling of brachytherapy sources. Brachytherapy is a cancer treatment method in which radioactive sources (seeds) are implanted into and around cancerous tissues. A common method f o r determining the radiation dose distribution delivered to the patient requires analysis of two orthogonal radiographs that show the interstitial or intercavitary seed placement. First, the seeds must be identified on the radiographs, anddoi:10.1109/cbms.1994.316002 dblp:conf/cbms/BirdCC94 fatcat:ieuxpvyhu5d3zjkjccvsjwdyea
