          Prostate cancer (PCa) is the most common cancer in men in the UK and approximately half of patients diagnosed will receive radiotherapy alone or in conjunction with surgery or hormone therapy as part of their disease management [1]. Despite the rapid evolution of imaged guided radiotherapy (IGRT), verification of soft tissue targets like the prostate gland, remains challenging and image analysis is prone to uncertainty and inter-observer variability [2,3]. IGRT for PCa frequently employs surgically implanted fiducial markers (FMs) as an aid to target verification.
