isocenter
The points on a photograph intersected by the bisector of the angle between the plumb line and the photograph perpendicular (i.e., where the principal axis meets the positive or negative plane). On a vertical photograph, the isocenter and photonadir point coincide with the principal point.

In CT, the use of deep learning algorithms can automatically adjust patient positioning, find the best isocenter for the patient as well as provide information on the optimal scan range and directions.
The healthy volunteers and patients were positioned prone with the examined arms placed above the head, and the hands were placed close to the isocenter of the gantry.
The system's isocenter was positioned over the area of interest and a total of 312 projection images (60 frames per second) were acquired for 5.2 s with a motorized C-arm that covered a 240[degrees] clockwise arc at a rotation speed of 55[degrees] per second during a breath-hold.
ProteusONE also offers the most advanced proton therapy technology on the market as it combines pencil beam scanning with 3-D cone beam computed tomography large field of view for true volumetric imaging at isocenter. Its compact design makes it easy to install, integrate, operate, and finance.
The isocenter was set on the free-breathing 3D scan using the Philips virtual simulation software.
Each beam configuration ([[theta].sub.i]) is made up of n coplanar beam directions [theta] = ([b.sub.1],[b.sub.2],...,[b.sub.n]) and each beam angle [b.sub.i] is divided into 1x1 [cm.sup.2] beamlets on the isocenter plane along the irradiation.
It is also known that the resolution in the FOV decreases as the distance from isocenter increases, which results in spatial variation of resolution.

The prescribed dose was normalized to 100% at the isocenter and PTV was covered by 95% isodose surface (ICRU Report 50).
