Abstract: Motion compensation is an interesting approach to improve treatments of moving structures. For example, target motion can substantially affect dose delivery in radiation therapy, where methods to detect and mitigate the motion are widely used. Recent advances in fast, volumetric ultrasound have rekindled the interest in ultrasound for motion tracking. We present a setup to evaluate ultrasound based motion tracking and we study the effect of imaging rate and motion artifacts on its performance.
