The Use of Breathing Synchronized CT and PET Scans in Radiation Therapy Treatment Planning
The objectives are to measure the amount of tumor motion with respiration, measure changes
in tumor definition with breathing synchronized PET compared to standard free breathing PET,
and to determine the fraction of patients whose radiation treatment plans would be modified
based on this information. Eligible patients are those receiving radiation treatment for
thoracic or liver tumors.
Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment, Masking: Open Label, Primary Purpose: Diagnostic
To measure the amount of tumor motion in breathing synchronized CT scans and determine the fraction of patients whose radiation treatment planning margins would be modified based on this information.
