Realising the potential of magnetic resonance image guided radiotherapy in gynaecological and rectal cancer.
MetadataShow full item record
Computerised tomography based radiotherapy workflow is limited by poor soft tissue definition in the pelvis and reliance on rigid registration methods. Current image guided radiotherapy and adaptive radiotherapy models therefore have limited ability to improve clinical outcomes. The advent of magnetic resonance image guided radiotherapy solutions provides the opportunity to overcome these limitations with the potential to deliver online real time magnetic resonance imaging based plan adaptation on a daily basis, a true "plan of the day". This review describes the application of magnetic resonance image guided radiotherapy in two pelvic tumour sites likely to benefit from this approach.
