Optimization of Selective Internal Radiation Therapy in the Liver
SIRTOP is a project funded by Fraunhofer that aims to optimize the planning, guidance, and follow-up for radioembolization of the liver.
In this cancer therapy, a dedicated analysis of tumor load for dosimetry and catheter placement is mandatory. Multimodal imaging data is acquired and supports both planning and postoperative monitoring. In SIRTOP, research and software development focuses on the following aims:
- Automation for global and local SIRT planning and dosimetry
- Development of new evaluation means and software to combine modalities to understanding the SIRT process and apply this knowledge to improve the planning and therapy
- Support the intervention itself in the angio suite.
