Forums Deep Inspiration Breath Hold Using surrogate area for tracking Reply To: Using surrogate area for tracking

Thank you for your responses…very helpful.  Our rule of thumb here is that electron boosts are generally done on free breathing scans.  However, there have been a select few cases where the physician specifically requests doing it on breath hold.  For those cases, we are trying to develop a workflow to ease the treatments on the machine.  It seems like there is a general consensus that it is OK to include an ROI that is not necessarily being directly treated.  Thank you all for your help!
