Abstract
The purpose of this work was to evaluate three motion-monitoring systems: Sentinel (TM), Catalyst (TM) (both C-RAD) and Real-time Position Management (RPM (TM)) system (Varian Medical Systems Inc) for respiratory gating in radiotherapy. To measure the systems. latency, an in-house built circuit with a microcontroller operating a piston was used. The trigger pulse was sent from the gating systems to the accelerator within 300 mu s. However, the response time of the accelerator could be over 300 ms
