We describe a method to convert Zero Echo Time (ZTE) MR images into synthetic CT at the resolution required for Radiation Therapy (RT). The method was tested for the head and neck application on N=8 patient data. The dose was calculated with a RT planning software and the results were compared relative to co-registered CT data.
