FIG. 2.

Schematic diagram of IRmarker-based dynamic tumor-tracking irradiation (IR tracking). In the 4D-modeling phase, the mean and standard deviation of the absolute 4D-modeling error, as well as the peak-to-peak amplitude of the target motion, are shown on the screen of the Vero4DRT. The right four groups of waves, from top to bottom, show variations in the IR markers’ positions in the AP direction and the target positions in the LR, CC, and AP directions, respectively. In the graphs of the target position, dark-colored waves show the detected target position and light-colored waves show the predicted target position. During beam delivery, the future 3D target position is calculated from the displacements of the IR markers using the 4D model, and then the corresponding tracking orientation is transferred continuously to the gimbaled x-ray head.

Variations in the target position along the CC direction for the respiratory pattern of the first patient who underwent IR tracking (Patient no. 3). Square symbols indicate the detected positions of the target, solid lines with round symbols indicate the tracked positions of the target, and dotted lines show positional tracking errors.
