Abstract/OtherAbstract:
A system using closed-circuit television has been developed to enable the measurement of patient movements to an accuracy of 1 mm during external beam radiotherapy. The circuitry is under the control of a microcomputer, which records the movement data on magnetic tape for later analysis. The results indicate that patients mostly remain within 1 mm of their original set-up position on the treatment couch.
