Paper Abstract

Electronic methods of imaging cancer patients can be superior to conventional radiographs in accuracy and speed of handling. Diagnostic video images can be displayed simultaneously with simulated treatment images or with actual treatment images to facilitate comparison and increase accuracy. Live display of patients undergoing treatment can be accomplished by using a therapy beam fluoroscreen. By simultaneously presenting images of the original treatment setup along with the live display, duplication of the original setup can be verified. These images can be stored on disk for permanent record. They can be played back by the physician at his convenience in order to check daily patient setups. Gamma camera images can be used to localize brachytherapy implants.
