German term or phrase: Lokalisationsaufnahme
I'm (still!) translating a text about irradiation treatment for cancer patients. In one appendix, I have a heading "Bestrahlungsplan", followed by list of requirements to satisfy such a plan. There are 3 terms I have difficulty with: Lokalisationsaufnahme, Körperschnitt-Darstellungen, Simulationsaufnahmen. I'm not sure if the 'aufnahme(n)' here refers to images, x-rays, recordings. There is no other context, these are just subheadings of the main heading. I also don' t understand what is meant by "Körperschnitt-". Is this sections of the body? Or can anyone recommend a good online bi-lingual medical dictionary? I'm all googled out. Your help would be greatly received!

or "localisation" in EE. I think it is means just that - an image (i.e. X-ray) taken to locate a tumor, etc in the breast. I would have thought that "portal localization" refers to a particular type of localization by imaging. The reference below uses the term "localization image":
