Seventh International Conference on Information Visualization (IV'03)
Towards Accurate Tumour Tracking in Lungs
London, England
July 16-July 18
ISBN: 0-7695-1988-1
Motivated by radiotherapy and hadrontherapy improvement we consider in a first step the potential of a simple elastic mechanical modelling to simulate lung deformations and motions during respiration, towards tumour tracking.
Two approaches are presented: one is the finite-element based method and the other is the mass-spring system. For these approaches, we suggest a personalisation based on the measurement of physical and geometrical data for each patient.
Index Terms:
conformal radiotherapy, hadrontherapy, lung compliance, finite elements, mass-spring systems, Young modulus
