Abstract

Background: Accurate delineation of target volumes for external beam radiotherapy is a crucial step in radiation treatment, but can be associated with considerable uncertainty and variability. The aim of this study was to compare target volume delineation on MRI vs CT and to compare Simultaneous Truth and Performance Level Estimation (STAPLE) generated contours with expert clinician contours.
