Image-guided radiation therapy (IGRT) is utilization of imaging, while the patient undergoes radiation. This enables us to directly view the process of radiation and accurate and precise treatment can be expected. Computed tomography (CT), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), ultrasound (US) and x-ray imaging can be used to deliver Radiation therapy. Imaging allows us to alter the power or location of the radiation in par with the tumor size, location etc.
Scholarly peer review is the process of subjecting an author's scholarly work, research, or ideas to the scrutiny of others who are experts in the same field, before a paper describing this work is published in a journal. The work may be accepted, considered acceptable with revisions, or rejected. Peer review requires a community of experts in a given (narrowly defined) field, who are qualified and able to perform reasonably impartial review.
