AI model could save radiation therapists and radiation oncologists hours of work per patient

At the Catharina Hospital in Eindhoven much of the work involved in radiotherapy for breast cancer patients has already been automated. The hospital has the most precise and smart treatment equipment for cancer patients. But until now, making precise radiation plans and delineating the organs of individual patients on CT images is still largely done by hand. This could be about to change, thanks to research by PDEng student Nienke Bakx of Eindhoven University of Technology. The research is published in Radiation Oncology.
