Abstract

Background and purpose. Anatomic changes during head and neck radiotherapy require replanning. The primary aim of this study is the definition of the agreement among experts in the head and neck automatic delineation frame to use as benchmark. The secondary goal is to assess the reliability of automatic delineation for nasopharynx radiotherapy and time saving. Material and methods. A computed tomography (CT) scan was acquired in 10 nasopharynx patients along intensity-modulated radiotherapy (IMRT) treatment for replanning. Deformable registration with replanning autocontouring of the structures was performed using VelocityAI 2.3
