The aim of the current work was to develop and test a method for comparing the geometrical representation of a patient using computed tomography (CT), and CT like images derived from magnetic resonance images (MRI). It would be beneficial to use MRI alone for both target delineation and treatment planning to save time and costs. This was first investigated in Umea university Hospital by introducing substitute computed tomography (SCT) obtained from MRI images and which can be used as CT equivalent information. The data that is used in this report are from five patients with intracranial tumors; A MATLAB code has been developed to compare DDRs based on s-CT data with CT based DRR’s for these five patients.
