Intelligent patient positioning in precision radiotherapy

As part of the project, a head model is to be developed that is based both on CT data (3D volume data) from radiotherapy planning and on 2D optical images. The detection of the model parameters of the underlying head model is AI-based. Extracted keypoints (facial landmarks) of the head are used to generate a trackable pose. With the help of photogrammetric methods, a redundant algorithm can be developed that makes the AI methods used verifiable. In addition, conclusions can be drawn about the geometric registration between external and internal localised tumour positions. The aim is to generate reproducible patient positioning without additional stress in order to increase the precision of the therapy. This approach is intended to ensure the anatomical correctness and individual description of the patient so that treatment can be carried out in a (semi-)upright position with less strain on the patient and with fewer aids.
