AbstractIn radiation therapy it is recognized that margins are required around the CTV to ensure adequate minimal dose to the target tissues (ICRU 50). The margin between the PTV and CTV is a direct function of intra and inter fraction target and patient motion as well as daily setup deviation. In this work we describe a machine-vision respiratory-gating system, based on our reported photogrammetric patient position measurement technique.
