Real-Time Patient-Specific Lung Radiotherapy Targeting using Deep Learning

by   Markus D. Foote, et al.

Radiation therapy has presented a need for dynamic tracking of a target tumor volume. Fiducial markers such as implanted gold seeds have been used to gate radiation delivery but the markers are invasive and gating significantly increases treatment time. Pretreatment acquisition of a 4DCT allows for the development of accurate motion estimation for treatment planning. A deep convolutional neural network and subspace motion tracking is used to recover anatomical positions from a single radiograph projection in real-time. We approximate the nonlinear inverse of a diffeomorphic transformation composed with radiographic projection as a deep network that produces subspace coordinates to define the patient-specific deformation of the lungs from a baseline anatomic position. The geometric accuracy of the subspace projections on real patient data is similar to accuracy attained by original image registration between individual respiratory-phase image volumes.
