Project background

Project Background

  • Radiation oncology is the study of tumors in a body and aims to find out about their development, diagnosis, treatment and prevention.


Project background1

Project Background

  • External beam radiation therapy is the most common type of radiation treatment.


Project background2

Project Background

  • Problems with external beam radiotherapy:

    • Tumor prone to movement.

    • Patient prone to movement.

  • Problem with movement:

    • Higher area around the tumor must be exposed to radiation to ensure that any movement of the tumor will lead to it being treated no matter where it moves to.

    • Reduced dose of radiation.


Project background3

Project Background

  • Image Guided Radiation Therapy (IGRT).


Real time robotic radiation oncology

Aims

  • To prove that a radiation beam can track a moving tumor in real-time.

  • To represent a tumor, a ball will be used and to simulate a radiation beam a laser beam will be used.

Image acquisition

Image Acquisition

  • Two parts to image acquisition:

    • Hardware

      • Logitech Quickcam.

    • Software

      • IMAQ Vision in Labview.


Image processing

Image Processing

  • Various edge detection techniques tried:

    • Canny Edge Detection.

    • Different Filter Types.

Canny Edge

Detection

Prewitt Filtering


Image processing1

Image Processing

  • Moving Objects.

    • Follow moving ball and detect movement around ball.

      • IMAQ Count Objects.


Robotic control

Robotic Control

  • The robotic control consists of two sections:

    • Hardware

      • Pan and Tilt assembly and Parallax servo controller.

  • Software

    • Interface with Labview.


Demonstration environment

Demonstration Environment

  • Lego Mindstroms NXT Robotic Kit.

  • Controls movement of the ball.


Final system

Final System

  • Ball movement is monitored to high degree of accuracy.

  • Pan and Tilt assembly running in real-time from Labview.
