Irradiation of a moving lung tumour


Radiation Oncologist José Belderbos and the team of radiotherapists and research workers demonstrate how a moving lung tumour is irradiated accurately. Physicist Marcel van Herk explains the principle of Cone Beam CT (CBCT) imaging.

Van Herk and his research group in the Netherlands Cancer Institute make a major contribution to the development of the image processing software that is part of the Cone Beam CT system on Elekta linear accelerators.
