Description

IGRT covers nearly every aspect of radiation treatment planning and delivery in radiation therapy and explains both the “why” and the “how,” the art and the science of IGRT.

Image Guided Radiation Therapy: A Clinical Perspective provides an overview of the basic concepts of IGRT and includes a review of its history and present status.

Additionally, Image-Guided Target Delineation Technologies presents an in-depth overview of the main imaging modalities used for target delineation, namely computed tomography (CT) including 4-dimensional (4D) CT, magnetic resonance (MR) imaging and positron emission tomography (PET). Image Guided Treatment Technologies systemically introduces the reader to the major in-room IGRT treatment technologies available today, including video, ultrasound, planar and volumetric-based imaging systems.

Organized anatomically, Clinical Sites and Case Studies is a comprehensive overview of the clinical applications of IGRT. Within each section, traditional overview chapters are paired with case studies of actual treated patients, focusing on image-guided target delineation and image-guided treatment delivery.
