  5. Automated Object Contouring Methods and Software for Radiotherapy Planning

    SBC: Quantitative Radiology Solutions LLC            Topic: 102

    Abstract In 2015, 1,658,370 new cancer cases are estimated to occur in the US, where nearly two-thirds will have radiation therapy (RT). Given that there are over 2,300 RT centers in the US, and current systems for contouring organs at risk (OARs) rely mostly on manual methods, there is a strong commercial opportunity for producing a software system that can contour OARs in medical images at a hig ...
