Treatment planning for pancreatic cancer stereotactic body radiation therapy (SBRT) is very challenging owing to vast spatial variations and close proximity of many organs-at-risk. Recently, deep learning (DL)-based methods have been applied in dose prediction tasks of various treatment sites with the aim of relieving planning challenges. Limited investigations, however, have been reported on DL-based dose prediction for pancreatic cancer SBRT. This study aims to further current knowledge in DL-based dose prediction tasks by implementing and demonstrating the feasibility of a new dual pyramid networks (DPNs) integrated DL-model for predicting dose distributions of pancreatic SBRT. The proposed framework is composed of four parts: CT-only feature pyramid network (FPN), contour-only FPN, late fusion network and adversarial network. Combination of mean absolute error, gradient difference error, histogram matching, and adversarial loss is used for supervision. The performance of proposed model was demonstrated for pancreatic cancer SBRT plans for doses prescribed between 33 and 50 Gy over five fractions to up to three planning target volumes (PTV). Five-fold cross-validation was performed on 30 patients and another 20 patients were used as holdout tests. Predicted plans were compared with clinically approved plans through dose-volume parameters. The proposed framework was able to predict 87% and 91% of clinically relevant dose parameters for cross-validation sets and holdout sets, respectively, without any significant differences (P > 0.05). For the parameters with significant differences (P < 0.05), the predicted doses to the duodenum and spinal cord were lower in comparison to the clinical plans. The proposed model was also able to predict the intentional hotspots as feature characteristics of SBRT plans. Overall, the proposed model was able to predict doses to cases with both single and multiple PTVs. In conclusion, the DPN integrated DL-model demonstrated good overall plan quality and dose prediction accuracy for pancreatic cancer SBRT.

Array programming provides a powerful, compact and expressive syntax for accessing, manipulating and operating on data in vectors, matrices and higher-dimensional arrays. NumPy is the primary array programming library for the Python language. It has an essential role in research analysis pipelines in fields as diverse as physics, chemistry, astronomy, geoscience, biology, psychology, materials science, engineering, finance and economics. For example, in astronomy, NumPy was an important part of ...

Abstract External beam radiation therapy fractions have become extremely complex and tedious procedures to plan, due to stringent requirements of delivering the highest radiation dose to the tumor while maximally avoiding organs at risk. However, due to anatomic and/or biological changes between fractions, dose re-optimization may be needed. Re-optimization is a time-consuming task which is typically triggered based on subjective visual assessment by an experienced physician. To address limitati...

Deep learning algorithms have recently been developed that utilize patient anatomy and raw imaging information to predict radiation dose, as a means to increase treatment planning efficiency and improve radiotherapy plan quality. Current state-of-the-art techniques rely on convolutional neural networks (CNNs) that use pixel-to-pixel loss to update network parameters. However, stereotactic body radiotherapy (SBRT) dose is often heterogeneous, making it difficult to model using pixel-level loss. G...

PURPOSE: Daily online adaptive plan quality in magnetic resonance imaging guided radiation therapy (MRgRT) is difficult to assess in relation to the fully optimized, high quality plans traditionally established offline. Machine learning prediction models developed in this work are capable of predicting 3D dose distributions, enabling the evaluation of online adaptive plan quality to better inform adaptive decision-making in MRgRT. METHODS: Artificial neural networks predicted 3D dose distributio...

Purpose Although dose prediction for intensity modulated radiation therapy (IMRT) has been accomplished by a deep learning approach, delineation of some structures is needed for the prediction. We sought to develop a fully automated dose-generation framework for IMRT of prostate cancer by entering the patient CT datasets without the contour information into a generative adversarial network (GAN) and to compare its prediction performance to a conventional prediction model trained from patient con...

PURPOSE: To develop and test a three-dimensional (3D) deep learning model for predicting 3D voxel-wise dose distributions for intensity-modulated radiotherapy (IMRT). METHODS: A total of 122 postoperative rectal cancer cases treated by IMRT were considered in the study, of which 100 cases were randomly selected as the training-validating set and the remaining as the testing set. A 3D deep learning model named 3D U-Res-Net_B was constructed to predict 3D dose distributions. Eight types of 3D matr...

PURPOSE: We propose a novel domain-specific loss, which is a differentiable loss function based on the dose-volume histogram (DVH), and combine it with an adversarial loss for the training of deep neural networks. In this study, we trained a neural network for generating Pareto optimal dose distributions, and evaluate the effects of the domain-specific loss on the model performance. METHODS: In this study, three loss functions - mean squared error (MSE) loss, DVH loss, and adversarial (ADV) loss...

PURPOSE Manual delineation on all breathing phases of lung cancer 4D CT image datasets can be challenging, exhaustive, and prone to subjective errors because of both the large number of images in the datasets and variations in the spatial location of tumors secondary to respiratory motion. The purpose of this work is to present a new deep learning-based framework for fast and accurate segmentation of lung tumors on 4D CT image sets. METHODS The proposed DL framework leverages motion region convo...
