Abstract The use of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scans alone for radiotherapy treatment planning (MR-only planning) has been highlighted as one method of improving patient outcomes. Recent technological advances have meant that introducing MR-only planning to the clinic is now becoming a reality, with several specialist radiotherapy clinics treating patients with this technique. As such, substantial efforts are being made to introduce this technique into wide-spread clinical implementation. ...

Abstract Involved site lymphoma radiotherapy clinical target volumes (CTV) require expansion in the absence of treatment-position pre-chemotherapy PET-CT. This prospective imaging study evaluates CTV contouring for axillary lymphoma using diagnostic imaging compared with co-registered treatment-position PET-CT. Generous expansion axially and cranio-caudally is required to encompass pre-chemotherapy disease without treatment-position pre-chemotherapy PET-CT.

Abstract Background and purpose Involved site radiotherapy clinical target volume (CTV) for lymphoma requires an expansion to account for the absence of radiotherapy treatment-position pre-chemotherapy imaging, which is not widely implemented. This prospective imaging study aims to quantify CTV expansion required for neck radiotherapy. Materials and methods 10 patients from a prospective single centre imaging study underwent a pre-chemotherapy FDG-PET-CT in both the diagnostic and radiotherapy t...

Abstract Background and purpose To assess the accuracy of gross tumour volume (GTV) delineation for head and neck squamous cell carcinoma (HNSCC) using a diagnostic position MRI (MRI-D) deformably registered to the planning CT (pCT), by comparison with a dedicated planning position MRI (MRI-RT). Material and methods Fourteen patients with HNSCC underwent a T1-weighted MRI-D and MRI-RT. A reference GTV was defined as that delineated on MRI-RT rigidly registered to pCT. GTVs were delineated on: MR...
