In this study a (semi-)automatic tool for red bone marrow segmentation in the pelvis was developed. The tool is solely based on MR Dixon imaging. It is intended for the dose planning for radiotherapy with the hematologic active bone marrow sparing. The optimization and validation of the tool was performed by means of FDG-PET scans of nine cervical cancer patients.
