Motion Compensation in Radiosurgery

Abstract

This chapter describes the principles of motion compensation in radiotherapy with a focus on robotic radiosurgery, starting with a brief description of the medical implications. Throughout, special emphasis will be placed on the CyberKnife_R system and we will outline the problems originating from the aim of real-time motion compensation. The main current application of robotic radiotherapy is the treatment of malignant tumours while a second, very promising field is the therapy of cardiac arrhythmia, especially of atrial fibrillation. An outline of this project called CyberHeart, and the challenges emanating from it, will be given in section 2.5.a
