U of T professor Shouyi Wang has developed a mathematical model based, personalized respiratory motion system for more precise lung tumor imaging.
Respiratory gating, or a patient’s motion breath-by-breath, is monitored, and the data is used to focus a radiology beam on the target when the chest cavity is relaxed. This is the stage that provides the best picture of a cancerous site.
Current techniques depend on expensive, uncomfortable, scanning equipment pressed on a patient’s chest. This often produces only moderately accurate images.
