Dose quantification from in-beam positron emission tomography
Enghardt, W.; Parodi, K.; Crespo, P.; Fiedler, F.; Pawelke, J.; Pönisch, F.;
Positron emission tomography (PET) imaging of the radioactivity distributions induced by therapeutic irradiation is at present the only feasible method for an in-situ and non-invasive monitoring of radiooncology treatments with ion-beams. The clinical implementation of this imaging technlogy at the experimental carbon ion therapy facility at the Gesellschaft für Schwerionenforschung (GSI) at Darmstadt, Germany is outlined and an interactive approach for a PET guided quantification of local dose deviations with respect to the treatment plan is presented.
