Radiation Oncology

Radiation oncology is a branch of oncology that involves the controlled utilization of radiation to diagnose cancer and other symptoms caused by cancer. Radiation therapy is the word used to describe the actual treatment delivered by the radiation oncologists. They require precise imaging of internal anatomy so that it is well adapted to the tumour and organs at risk. Certainly, morphological imaging such as computed tomography is previously recommended for radiotherapy planning. But radiation oncologists are also in view of other imaging techniques for treatment planning and imaging tools capable of controlling patient motion during treatment. Imaging play a vital role during treatment development and delivery of radiation therapy via techniques such as: 4D computed tomography, morphological and functional MRI, positron emission tomography, and imaging devices mounted on accelerators.
