Image data

  • 3D neck CT for radiotherapy planning
  • Head and neck
  • 18 scans
  • Spatial resolution in-plane is 1 mm (16 sets) and 0.7 mm (2 sets). Slice thickness 1.5 mm (5 sets), 2.5 mm (11 sets), 3 mm (1 sets) and 5 mm (1 sets).
  • Variable longitudinal field of view

Comments: Examples of sagittal views. The tumor is shown in red.


Automatic atlas-based segmentation for the tissues relevant in hyperthermia treatment planning of head and neck.

Registration settings

elastix version: 4.5

Parameter files:

Before rigid registration images needs to be aligned due to different longitudinal field of view. Standard center of gravity and origin aligment are not always working.
