In four-dimensional time-dependent computed tomography (4D-CT) of the lungs, irregularities in breathing movements can cause errors in data acquisition, or even data loss. We present a method based on sending a synthetic, regular breathing signal to the CT instead of the real signal, which ensures 4D-CT data sets without data loss. Subsequent correction of the signal based on the real breathing curve enables an accurate reconstruction of the size and movement of the target volume. This makes it possible to plan radiation treatment based on the obtained data. The method was tested with dynamic thorax phantom measurements using synthetic and real breathing patterns.
