GetDoseAtVolume or GetVolumeAtDose for structures with <100% dose coverage not working

Oct 3, 2014 at 6:29 PM
Whenever GetDoseAtVolume or GetVolumeAtDose is called on a structure with <100% coverage by the calculation volume in Eclipse the function gives "N/A". Is there anyway to get these functions to work on structures not completely covered by the dose calculation volume?

You will need to either make the calculation volume larger, or create a new structure that fits inside the calculation volume.

I'll have to write my own functions then. I'm calculating conformity indices using the body contour and often the body is just a little beyond the superior and inferior edges of the dose calculation volume. I'm writing something for use on each patient, which means that the planners would need to edit the body/skin contours for most patients to get the code to work.
