Automatic segmentation for plan-of-the-day selection in CBCT-guided adaptive radiation therapy of cervical cancer

Abstract

Objective: Plan-of-the-day (PoD) adaptive radiation therapy (ART) is based on a library of treatment plans, among which, at each treatment fraction, the PoD is selected using daily images. However, this strategy is limited by PoD selection uncertainties. This work aimed to propose and evaluate a workflow to automatically and quantitatively identify the PoD for cervix cancer ART based on daily CBCT images. Approach: The quantification was based on the segmentation of the main structures of interest in the CBCT images (clinical target volume [CTV], rectum, bladder, and bowel bag) using a deep learning model. Then, the PoD was selected from the treatment plan library according to the geometrical coverage of the CTV. For the evaluation, the resulting PoD was compared to the one obtained considering reference CBCT delineations. Main results: In experiments on a database of 23 patients with 272 CBCT images, the proposed method reached a concordance of 98.9% between the reference PoD and the automatically identified PoD. Significance: The proposed automatic workflow automatically selected PoD for ART using deep-learning methods. The results showed the ability of the proposed process to identify the optimal PoD in a treatment plan library.
