Since there is no abstract available we provide the first paragraph

Technical innovations over the last two decades have changed significantly the practice of radiation therapy (RT). Modern anatomic imaging technologies, such as x-ray computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), provide a fully three-dimensional (3-D) anatomical model of the cancer patient, which is often complemented with functional imaging studies, such as positron emission tomography (PET) or magnetic resonance spectroscopy (MRS). Such advanced imaging now allows the radiation oncologist to more accurately identify tumor volumes and their spatial relationship with critical normal organs.
