Abstract
An investigation was made into the employment of a photogrammetric technique to determine the treatment surface topography of patients undergoing radiotherapy. A suitable technique that meets criteria of simplicity and accuracy is described. Simplification is achieved by utilizing the source light of the radiotherapy unit to project a pattern that serves to complete a stereo pair with a photograph. Accuracy of the order of 2 mm. was obtainable with a test space. An example with a human form is presented.
