Image registration has become increasingly important in the treatment planning process. Historically, clinicians might register a single modality to a planning CT to help guide their target delineation or contouring of OAR's. However, as image registration tools have become more robust, these same clinicians are in need of advanced rigid and deformable registrations, multi-modality registrations, dose accumulation, and respiratory tracking tools.
This session will include an overview of different types of rigid and deformable (non-rigid) image registration methodology. Attendees will review clinical applications of these different registration methods such as image-guided tumor targeting, adaptive radiotherapy, dose accumulation, and 4D CT. The importance of registration QA will be examined as well as the different tools used for evaluation of the deformable registration
Attendees will learn the basics behind registration and what it can be used for clinically. This will include a basic understanding of both Rigid and deformable. We will also discuss limitations and common pitfalls with registration QA, and finally we will make sure we are comfortable QAing our registrations within MIM so that we provide the highest quality registration possible.
