    • Webinar #27 of the AAPM Webinar Series: Advances in Medical Physics
      The MArkerless Lung Target Tracking CHallenge (MATCH) : An AAPM Grand Challenge
      The MATCH was an AAPM 2020 Grand Challenge that promoted the Markerless Target Tracking research and clinical practice by providing a common measurement methodology to benchmark Markerless Target Tracking approaches. Overall, 30 participants competed for the best target tracking accuracy in both an in-silico and an experimental study. 16 total entries were made for the final ranking. In this webinar, the organizers of MATCH will summarize the challenge logistics and final results, and the two highest-ranked Markerless Target Tracking approaches will be presented by the winning participants.
      Panelists: Marco Mueller, Per Poulsen, Wilko Verbakel

Corgi Phantom:
The Corgi Phantom is designed to evaluate cone beam CT systems. The modular phantom can be configured for different scan sizes, providing tests for multi-axis high resolution, sensitometry, cone beam artifacts, and uniformity. Additionally, the phantom includes holes for measuring dose.

Liver Phantom:
The Liver Phantom combines the advantages of objective test objects and anthropomorphic elements for evaluation of advanced iterative processing. The phantom includes low contrast test objects designed both for ROC tests along with conventional patterns, metal artifact inserts, and beads for MTF calculations.
