MegaVoltage Cone Beam Computed Tomography with a standard medical linear accelerator
Markwell, Timothy S. (2015) MegaVoltage Cone Beam Computed Tomography with a standard medical linear accelerator. PhD thesis, Queensland University of Technology.
Accurate patient positioning is vital for improved clinical outcomes for cancer treatments using radiotherapy. This project has developed Mega Voltage Cone Beam CT using a standard medical linear accelerator to allow 3D imaging of the patient position at treatment time with no additional hardware required. Providing 3D imaging functionality at no further cost allows enhanced patient position verification on older linear accelerators and in developing countries where access to new technology is limited.
