The advent of modern radiotherapy is a cross disciplinary development between the fields of biomedical engineering, medicine, and the basic sciences which has provided the scientific community with an innovative and continually developing arsenal in the fight against cancer. At the forefront of this battle is the utilization of radiotherapy to treat cancers of different morphological and embryological origins. Intra-operative radiotherapy (IORT) is a technique in which a high, single-fraction radiation dose is delivered during a surgical procedure to macroscopic tumors, or immediately after resection to the operative bed, with minimum exposure to surrounding tissue. IORT can be done with a number of modalities, including utilization of an electron beam or high dose rate brachytherapy, also known as HDR- IORT.
