‣ Optimization of Image Guided Radiation Therapy for Lung Cancer Using Limited-angle Projections
The developments of highly conformal and precise radiation therapy techniques promote the necessity of more accurate treatment target localization and tracking. On-board imaging techniques, especially the x-ray based techniques, have found a great popularity nowadays for on-board target localization and tracking. With an objective to improve the accuracy of on-board imaging for lung cancer patients, the dissertation work focuses on the investigations of using limited-angle on-board x-ray projections for image guidance. The limited-angle acquisition enables scan time and imaging dose reduction and improves the mechanical clearance of imaging.
First of all, the dissertation developed a phase-matched digital tomosynthesis (DTS) technique using limited-angle (<=30 deg) projections for lung tumor localization. This technique acquires the same traditional motion-blurred on-board DTS image as the 3D-DTS technique, but uses the planning 4D computed tomography (CT) to synthesize a phase-matched reference DTS to register with the on-board DTS for tumor localization. Of the 324 different scenarios simulated using the extended cardiac torso (XCAT) digital phantom, the phase-matched DTS technique localizes the 3D target position with an localization error of 1.07 mm (± 0.57 mm) (average ± standard deviation (S.D.)). Similarly...
‣ Parameterizing Image Quality of TOF versus Non-TOF PET as a Function of Body Size
Positron emission tomography (PET) is a nuclear medicine diagnostic imaging exam of metabolic processes in the body. Radiotracers, which consist of positron emitting radioisotopes and a molecular probe, are introduced into the body, emitted radiation is detected, and tomographic images are reconstructed. The primary clinical PET application is in oncology using a glucose analogue radiotracer, which is avidly taken up by some cancers.
It is well known that PET performance and image quality degrade as body size increases, and epidemiological studies over the past two decades show that the adult US population's body size has increased dramatically and continues to increase. Larger patients have more attenuating material that increases the number of emitted photons that are scattered or absorbed within the body. Thus, for a fixed amount of injected radioactivity and acquisition duration, the number of measured true coincidence events will decrease, and the background fractions will increase. Another size-related factor, independent of attenuation, is the volume throughout which the measured coincidence counts are distributed: for a fixed acquisition duration, as the body size increases, the counts are distributed over a larger area. This is true for both a fixed amount of radioactivity...
‣ Compressed Sensing Based Image Restoration Algorithm with Prior Information: Software and Hardware Implementations for Image Guided Therapy
Based on the compressed sensing theorem, we present the integrated software and hardware platform for developing a total-variation based image restoration algorithm by applying prior image information and free-form deformation fields for image guided therapy. The core algorithm we developed solves the image restoration problem for handling missing structures in one image set with prior information, and it enhances the quality of the image and the anatomical information of the volume of the on-board computed tomographic (CT) with limited-angle projections. Through the use of the algorithm, prior anatomical CT scans were used to provide additional information to help reduce radiation doses associated with the improved quality of the image volume produced by on-board Cone-Beam CT, thus reducing the total radiation doses that patients receive and removing distortion artifacts in 3D Digital Tomosynthesis (DTS) and 4D-DTS. The proposed restoration algorithm enables the enhanced resolution of temporal image and provides more anatomical information than conventional reconstructed images.
The performance of the algorithm was determined and evaluated by two built-in parameters in the algorithm, i.e., B-spline resolution and the regularization factor. These parameters can be adjusted to meet different requirements in different imaging applications. Adjustments also can determine the flexibility and accuracy during the restoration of images. Preliminary results have been generated to evaluate the image similarity and deformation effect for phantoms and real patient's case using shifting deformation window. We incorporated a graphics processing unit (GPU) and visualization interface into the calculation platform...
