Motion management is critical for the efficacy of carbon ion therapy for moving targets such as lung tumors. We evaluated the feasibility of using 4D-CBCT reconstructed by Simultaneous Motion Estimation and Image Reconstruction (SMEIR) for dose calculation and accumulation in carbon ion treatment of lung cancer.

4D cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) images of the thorax and abdomen can have reduced quality due to the limited number of projections per respiratory bin used in gated image reconstruction. In th...
Head motion is a major source of image artefacts in neuroimaging studies and can lead to degradation of the quantitative accuracy of reconstructed PET images. Simultaneous magnetic resonance-positron ...
Respiratory and cardiac motion can strongly impair cardiac PET image quality and tracer uptake quantification. Standard gating techniques can minimize these motion artefacts but suffer from low signal...
Four dimensional cone-beam computed tomography (4D CBCT) improves patient positioning and the accuracy of radiation therapy for patients with mobile tumours. Generally, 4D CBCT requires many hundreds ...
Edges tend to be over-smoothed in total variation (TV) regularized under-sampled images. In this study, symmetric residual convolutional neural network (SR-CNN), a deep learning based model, was propo...
The goal is to achieve the maximal radiotherapy tumor dose while sparing the health tissue and critical structures. On-board cone-beam CT (CBCT) scans are routinely acquired prior to dose ...
This study aims to study the impact image guided radiotherapy with Cone beam CT will have on the outcomes(toxicities and response) of head and neck cancer when compared to 3D conformal rad...

The standard non-surgical treatment for muscle invasive bladder cancer is concurrent chemo-radiotherapy. This treatment is associated with long term side effects in around a third of patie...
Cone Beam Computed Tomography (CBCT) is an emerging X-ray technology that has found wide applications in dentomaxillofacial imaging. The ability to provide high-resolution 3D images has re...
A method of delineating blood vessels by subtracting a tissue background image from an image of tissue plus intravascular contrast material that attenuates the X-ray photons. The background image is determined from a digitized image taken a few moments before injection of the contrast material. The resulting angiogram is a high-contrast image of the vessel. This subtraction technique allows extraction of a high-intensity signal from the superimposed background information. The image is thus the result of the differential absorption of X-rays by different tissues.
The simultaneous, or near simultaneous, transference of heart and lungs from one human or animal to another.
Timing the acquisition of imaging data to specific points in the cardiac cycle to minimize image blurring and other motion artifacts.
A film or video wholly or partially created by photographing drawings, sculptures, or other inanimate things in sequence to create the illusion of motion. Animations are also generated by computers. (From Moving Image Materials: Genre Terms, 1988)

Lung cancer is the uncontrolled cell growth in tissues of the lung. Originating in the lungs, this growth may invade adjacent tissues and infiltrate beyond the lungs. Lung cancer, the most common cause of cancer-related death in men and women, is respons...
