Algorithmic development of proton radiography for image-guided proton radiotherapy of lung cancer.

Project description

Algorithms development for image-guided proton therapy

Proton therapy (PT) is a new type of radiation therapy that allows better control and targeting of the proton beams, resulting in fewer side effects than traditional radiation. It is well suited for the treatment of non-small cell lung cancer, but the expected benefits of PT are significantly obstructed by patients’ breathing motion. The goal of the EU-funded MSPrad project is to develop real-time tumour tracking for accurate PT treatment. The objectives encompass development of a proton radiography image quality enhancement algorithm, implementation of a position tracking algorithm from high-quality proton radiography, and comprehensive experimental validation of the integrated image-guided PT unit.
