Title: TUMOR TRACKING WITH INTELLIGENT TUMOR SIZE CHANGE NOTICE
Abstract:
A tumor tracking device (110) includes a guideline engine (130), a detection engine (132), and a user interface (134). The guideline engine (130) receives a current measurement and a plurality of prior measurements of at least one lesion according to a medical image of a subject, each of the current and the plurality of prior measurements identified chronologically, and calculates growth between the current measurement and a most recent measurement of the plurality of prior measurements. The detection engine (132) calculate growth between the current measurement and each of non-most recent measurements of the plurality of prior measurements, and identified at least one of the non- most recent measurements in response to calculated growth between the current measurement and each of non-most recent measurements of the plurality of prior measurements exceeding a threshold according to a medical guideline and the calculated growth between the current measurement and a most recent measurement of the plurality of prior measurements failing to exceed the threshold. The user interface (134) displays on a display device (136) an indicator (138) of the identified at least one of the non-most recent measurements of the at least one lesion.
