Simulation of range-imaging-based prediction of respiratory organ and tumor motion using 4D CT data: Influence of signal dimensionality and sampling patterns

Introduction: Radiotherapy of thoracic and abdominal tumors has to cope with breathing-induced motion as a major source of localisation uncertainties. State-of-the-art problem-solving approaches like gating or tracking usually rely on external breathing signals [ref:1]. Assuming a (linear)[for full text, please go to the a.m. URL]
