Lung Cancer Clinical Trial
Dual-Energy CT on Plan Quality, Dose-delivery Accuracy, and Simulated Outcomes of Patients Treated With Proton or Photon Therapy
The aim of this protocol is to refine the accuracy of proton beam therapy (PT) by the use of dual energy computed tomography (DECT), in conjunction with novel iterative image reconstruction algorithms, to more precisely determine the tissue properties through which the proton beam path travels.
Diagnosis of histologically proven primary or metastatic cancer requiring thoracic radiation therapy OR radiation therapy to the head and neck or brain
At least 18 years of age.
Planning to undergo proton or photon beam radiation therapy as part of the clinical management of the diagnosed cancer.
Able to understand and willing to sign an IRB-approved written informed consent document.
Implanted metallic objects in the region to be scanned excepting dental prostheses
IV or oral contrast medium within 24 hours prior to DECT image acqusition
