External beam radiotherapy treats cancer lesions with ionizing radiation. Successful treatment requires a correct definition of the target volume. This is achieved using pre-treatment MR and CT images. However, due to changes in patient position, tumor size and organ location, adaptation of the treatment plan over the different treatment sessions might be wanted. This can be achieved with extra MR and CT images obtained during treatment. Bringing all images into a common reference frame, the initial segmentations can be propagated over time and the integrated dose can be correctly calculated.
