Abstract

Pretreatment MRI can be utilized as a tool to help plan radiation treatment portals, by delineating the extent of disease prior to chemotherapy and/or surgery. MRI can also be used post-operatively to assist with treatment planning. Advantages include superior anatomic delineation of soft tissue structures, improvement in lymph node imaging detail, and improved inter observer planning for the boost volume. Care studies include a case locally advanced breast cancer and a case of radiation treatment planning.
