Inter-observer variability in contouring for breast radiotherapy planning
(A) Lymph node regions
(B) Breast and Heart

To improve the quality in radiation therapy, following technologies of image interpretation and treatment planning are under investigation.

  • Clinical application of oncologic imaging in target volume assessment
  • Inter-observer variability in tumor and normal organ contouring
  • Auto-segmentation of tumors and normal organs
  • Image registration in image-guided radiotherapy
  • Dose distribution in high-precision radiotherapy
