Abstract :

The impact of technological innovations on Radiation Oncology cannot be overstated. Specifically, these innovations have enabled precise targeting of tumor cells and sparing of adjacent normal tissues. The past two decades have witnessed dramatic changes in the clinical practice of Radiation Oncology. Beginning with the advent of intensity modulated radiation therapy (IMRT) which revolutionized the field, there have been important developments in image-guided radiotherapy (IGRT), stereotactic body radiotherapy (SBRT), proton therapy and MRI guided radiation therapy (MRgRT). This talk will feature an overview of novel technological advances that have shaped the field of Radiation Oncology. After a brief historical perspective, the current state of practice will be presented followed by possible directions for future research.
