Add ability to generate composite skin dose map from multiple studies
Issue #601 new
My colleagues and I would find it useful to be able to generate a composite skin dose map from multiple studies. This would be useful when investigating accumulated skin dose from studies carried out within a few weeks of one another.
Obviously the calculated doses wouldn't be perfect, as the calculation would be assuming that the patient was in the identical position for each study.
This is possible, but may not be useful. See the individual skin maps below, followed by a skin dose map that is calculated using the data from both studies. I believe that the patient was in a different position for the second examination, making the combined map pointless.
Perhaps a more useful, and simpler solution, is to just add together the maximum peak skin dose from each study?
