    Abstract

    The main goal of radiotherapy is to destroy the tumor while minimizing harm to nearby healthy tissue. In order to achieve an effective and accurate treatment, motion of the target, caused by respiration, should be taken into account when positioning the beam. This paper presents a work-in-progress on computational techniques for identifying tumor position from an external marker during treatment session.
