Abstract

Intra-Operative Radiation Therapy (IORT) is a technique that combines surgery and adjuvant radiation directly applied to a post-resected tumor bed by means of a specific applicator docked to the linear accelerator. An IORT Treatment Planning System (TPS) allows radiation oncologists to plan the treatment using computed tomography (CT) images of the patients. The integration of an optical tracking system into the IORT scenario would allow guiding the radiation applicator according to the planned treatment. In this paper the complete integration of an optical tracking system into the TPS and the experimental set-up in the real IORT scenario is described, showing the feasibility of applicator guidance in IORT procedures.
