DICOM import and dose deposition

Hi,

I have a question related to DICOM IMPORT. I want to import DICOM file for a patient and to get the deposited dose in specific organ (lung left, lung right etc…). As I saw the DICOM example deals with voxels, and as a result you get dose map. Since I’m interested only in accumulated dose in specific organ, Is it possible to merge those voxels in in one solid volume and than to set that volume as a scoring volume?

If you have any suggestion I would be great full.

Thank you!

Hi,
Perform a cubic mesh on the phantom with the same voxels of the imported DICOM and then calculate dose. Use MATLAB to extract the voxels in a specific organ (e. g. ROI). Then sum the dose values in the ROI to measured the total dose.
