Design and Development of Electronic Portal Imaging Device (EPID) for radiation Therapy by CSIO, Chandigarh and VIT Vellore.

image

 

Description:For the treatment of cancer, Modern radiation therapy deploys use of advanced Linear accelerators (LINAC) and treatment planning systems. Treatment strategies like Image-Guided Radiation Therapy (IGRT) and Intensity-Modulated Radiation Therapy (IMRT) deploy precise treatment systems which are based on computational information from CT planning systems along with real time imaging from Electronic Portal Imaging Devices (EPID).

EPID is a camera based flat panel detector imaging technology integrated with LINAC machine. It helps capture images while the radiation treatment is about to start or in progress for accurate patient positioning and targeting of the desired region. EPID captures the image of the patient’s position with respect to beam location and helps calculate the error through which is beam is deviating from the region of interest or would harm the surrounding normal tissue.
