Image guided radiotherapy for oesophageal cancer, Optical imaging in radiotherapy
Focus of research
" Advanced optical imaging of the oesophagus during cancer therapy "
Optical coherence tomography (OCT) is a minimally invasive imaging technique to obtain cross sectional images with high resolution (1-10μm). This project aims on exploring the use of OCT in both lung and esophageal cancer patients. For the lung cancer patients, we aim to diagnose and quantify the radiation-induced esophagitis. Macroscopical disease extent is currently determined with endoscopic ultrasound (EUS)in esophageal cancer patients; OCT has potential to act asa promising imaging modality to improve knowledge of the disease extent beyond the EUS finding.
