This research was undertaken in order to investigate the robustness of the Anzai respiratory gating system. Tests were performed to verify the transfer of image data, to identify the method of gating and the accuracy of phase identification. It was found to have sizeable limitations which could result in either incorrectly gated images or serious artefacts. For these reasons it is recommended it be used under the guidance of a suitably qualified physicist.
