dc.description.abstractTreatment of prostate cancer with radiation therapy (RT) requires image guided RT (IGRT) to focus the radiation on the target volumes while minimizing doses to organs at risk. Here we describe a urinary catheter that allows imaging of the prostatic urethra and uses it for automatic localization of the prostate for IGRT. The catheter has a contrast lumen that can be empty or full with contrast. Computerized tomography is performed twice, with contrast lumen empty and full, allowing urethral autosegmentation using digital subtraction. Under ultrasound, continuous urethral visualization is possible by pumping aerated gel in- and out of the contrast lumen. © 2021 The Author(s)en_US
