Abstract

Respiratory motion during radiotherapy has a significant impact on the dose delivered to the targeted volume and surrounding tissue. The accurate treatment of liver tumours near the diaphragm can be difficult due to the large respiratory movement, as well as the differing tissue densities at the liver/lung interface. The aim of this project was to evaluate the accuracy of dose delivered to liver tumours using an in-house respiratory phantom designed to emulate the lung/liver interface.
