Title: IMAGING-GUIDED DELIVERY OF X-RAY RADIATION
Abstract:
Methods and devices are provided to enable treatment and imaging of a target in an X-ray system. In some configurations, radiation from a single X-ray source is used to provide both imaging and treatment radiations. A shutter is placed in a path between the X-ray source and the target to selectively control the imaging radiation that irradiates the target. Another shutter can be placed in a path between the X-ray source and the target to selectively control the treatment radiation. The operations of the shutters are controlled to allow simultaneous or time-multiplexed irradiation of the target with the imaging and treatment radiations. A detector captures the imaging radiation after it has interacted with the target and enables accurate determination of target characteristics, including the size and shape of the target.
