Today’s MRI does not have the spatio-temporal resolution to image the anatomy of a patient in real-time. Therefore, novel solutions are required in MRI-guided radiotherapy to enable real-time adaptation of the treatment beam to optimally target the cancer and spare surrounding healthy tissue. Neural networks could solve this problem, however, there is a dearth of sufficiently large training data required to accurately model patient motion. Here, we use the YouTube-8M database to train the AUTOMAP network. We use a virtual dynamic lung tumour phantom to show that the generalized motion properties learned from YouTube lead to improved target tracking accuracy.
