Abstract

A procedure to improve target volume definition in pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma by contrast enhanced 4D-CT imaging has been implemented for radiotherapy planning. The procedure allows good quality images to be obtained over the whole patient's breathing cycle in terms of anatomical details, pancreatic enhancement and vessel definition.
