Core Tip Autosegmentation is an attractive tool to reduce the labor involved with manual delineation of anatomy. However, it is unclear whether this approach is viable for all treatment conditions. Stereotactic body radiation therapy frequently utilizes respiratory gated, non-contrasted computed tomography imaging for radiation planning and involuntary heart motion as well as lack of intravenous contrast may impact the quality of generated structures. In our study, MIM software successfully contoured the great vessels and heart chambers yet failed in generating coronary arteries. We provide evidence that MIM software can reliably autocontour the larger cardiac substructures, but not coronary arteries or heart valves.
