Adapting Temperature Predictions to MR Imaging in Treatment Position to Improve Simulation-Guided Hyperthermia for Cervical Cancer

Adapting Temperature Predictions to MR Imaging in Treatment Position to Improve Simulation-Guided Hyperthermia for Cervical Cancer 150 150 IEEE Open Journal of Engineering in Medicine and Biology (OJEMB)

Abstract:

Hyperthermia treatment consists of elevating the temperature of the tumor to increase the effectiveness of radiotherapy and chemotherapy. Hyperthermia treatment planning (HTP) is an important tool to optimize treatment quality using pre-treatment temperature predictions. The accuracy of these predictions depends on modeling uncertainties such as tissue properties and positioning. In …
