Study of Automated Abdominal Compression Device and Screw Based Abdominal Compression Devices During Stereotactic Body Radiation Therapy of Lung Tumors


OBJECTIVES:

Primary

- To evaluate comfort associated with the existing screw-based abdominal compression
device and the new automated abdominal compression device in patients with lung tumors
undergoing stereotactic body radiotherapy.

Secondary

- To evaluate tumor motion in patients using these devices.

OUTLINE: This is a multicenter study.

Patients undergo fluoroscopic assessment of tumor motion with a screw-based abdominal
compression device. Patients then undergo non-contrast 4D-CT imaging with the screw-based
abdominal compression device followed by contrast 4D-CT imaging with an automated abdominal
compression device.

Immediately after stereotactic body radiotherapy simulation, patients complete a
questionnaire to assess the overall level of comfort of each abdominal-compression device.
