This research demonstrates that computer segmentations provide a feasible route to automatic target volume definition. Because of the lower variability and greater efficiency of the automated techniques, their use could lead to more precise plans and better prognosis for brain tumor patients.echo PD-weighted sequence with TR/TE = 3000/7.5 ms or a fluid-attenuated inversion recovery (FLAIR) sequence ... Each image set was then transferred to a Dell Inspiron 7000 laptop computer equipped with CMS software for image ... Registration was required to allow manual physician contouring on the MRI images.
