Abstract
A device for measuring the contour line of a patient, in particular for radiation therapy treatments, consists of at least one illuminating member for generating a plane of light beams which intersects the patient's body, at least one video camera for measuring the contour line produced on the patient's body by the plane of light beams and for detecting the position of said contour line in space, and a computer for numerical calculation of the contour line.
