Paper Abstract

A revised version of this paper, published originally on 2016, was published on 6 January, 2017, replacing the original paper. To correct for a set-up error, the simulated treatment plan was re-run using CT images of a solid water phantom with/without the Autoscan US probe in contact with its surface. The revised paper is available at http://dx.doi.org/10.1117/12.2216653.

Changes to original text:

  • Section 2.2
  • 1. A solid water phantom is employed as opposed to a Rando phantom.

    2. Figure 1 is changed to illustrate new phantom.

  • Section 2.3
  • 1. New treatment isocentre.

    2. Figure 3 is changed to illustrate dose distribution in new phantom.

  • Section 3.2
  • 1. Text of first paragraph has been revised to reflect new results.

    2. Table 2 has been revised to reflect new results.

    3. Figure 6 has been revised to reflect new results.

  • Section 4
  • 1. Text of second paragraph has been revised to reflect new results.
