Paper Abstract

Radiotherapy portal imaging is the process of producing images using a radiation treatment linear accelerator or cobalt 60 unit. Portal images are used to evaluate the position of the radiation treatment beam and placement of shielding blocks with respect to the patient's anatomy. This paper discusses types, characteristics and clinical use of radiation therapy portal imaging systems.
