Radiotherapy target volume definition is a critical step in the radiotherapy treatment planning process for all tumour sites. New technology may improve the identification of tumour from normal tissue for the purposes of target volume definition. In assessing the proffered benefits of new technologies, rigorous methods of comparison are necessary. A review of published studies was conducted using PubMed (National Library of Medicine) between 1 January 1995 and 1 January 2009 using predefined… CONTINUE READING
