Adapting numerical representations of lung contours using Case-Based Reasoning and Artificial Neural Networks

Abstract : In case of a radiological emergency situation involving accidental human exposure, a dosimetry evaluation must be established as soon as possible. In most cases, this evaluation is based on numerical representations and models of subjects. Unfortunately, personalised and realistic human representations are often unavailable for the exposed subjects. However, accuracy of treatment depends on the similarity of the phantom to the subject. The EquiVox platform (Research of Equivalent Voxel phantom) developed in this study uses Case-Based Reasoning principles to retrieve and adapt, from among a set of existing phantoms, the one to represent the subject. This paper introduces the EquiVox platform and Artificial Neural Networks developed to interpolate the subject's 3D lung contours. The results obtained for the choice and construction of the contours are presented and discussed.
