Paper Abstract

Gross tumor volume (GTV) regions of lung tumors should be determined with repeatability and reproducibility on planning computed tomography (CT) in radiation treatment planning to reduce intra- and inter-observer variations of GTV regions. Therefore, we have attempted to develop an automated segmentation framework of the GTV regions on planning CT images using dense V-Net deep learning (DenseVDL). In order to evaluate the GTV regions extracted by the DenseVDL network, Dice similarity coefficient (DSC) was used in this study. The proposed framework achieved average 2D-DSC of 0.73 and 3D-DSC of 0.76 for sixteen cases. The proposed framework using the DenseVDL may be useful for assisting in radiation treatment planning for lung cancer.
