This study is to investigate the feasibility of
developing a stereotactic radiosurgery treatment
protocol for spinal metastatic lesions based solely on a
dedicated 1.0 T magnetic resonance simulation platform.
The dose was calculated on a synthetic CT image set
generated from a weighted combination of T1-weighted and
T2-weighted images for one patient. The dose calculation
difference between CT and synthetic CT was within 3%.
However, the bony segmentation, metal artifacts and
geometric distortion correction need to be further
investigated to use MRI as the primary imaging modality
for spinal radiosurgery.
