ABSTRACT
As we develop radiation treatment planning systems for
head and neck cancer patients, there is a need to identify
reference patients whose anatomical structures share similar
features. By finding previously treated patients or
prototypical models with the most similar anatomy in the
head and neck region, our prototype system can do a better
job of identifying lymph node regions based on known
regions predefined for similar patients. This can potentially
expedite the radiation treatment planning process which
