New high-precision technologies for the planning and delivery of radiotherapy are major advances in cancer treatment. This volume is a comprehensive guidebook to these new technologies and the many clinical treatment programs that bring them into practical use. Advances in intensity modulated radiation therapy (IMRT), 4D and adaptive treatment planning are clearly explained, and the new target localization and image-guided radiotherapy (IGRT) systems are comprehensively reviewed. Clinical tutorials fully illustrate the target definitions for the major cancer sites, and techniques for organ motion management are shown. In addition, chapters explore the technical basis for stereotactic body radiotherapy (SBRT) and the latest clinical experience with it for most organ sites.
