Before performing radiation therapy, oncologists review medical images to identify tumors and surrounding tissue, a process known as contouring. Researchers have developed a new method for automating the contouring of high-risk clinical target volumes using artificial intelligence and supercomputers. They found the predicted contours could be implemented clinically, with only minor or no changes.
