Summary

The continued progress of radiation therapy for cancer patients has been driven by technology developments that have increased the complexity of radiation delivery, but has come at the cost of increased potential for errors in radiation planning and delivery.

The aim of this project is to implement an instrument for verification of treatment delivered to organs with large variation of shape and position due to respiration.

This will enhance treatment outcome and patient quality of life.
