Intensity modulated radiotherapy represents a significant advance in conformal radiotherapy. In particular, it allows the delivery of dose distributions with concave isodose profiles such that radiosensitive normal tissue close to, or even within a concavity of, a tumour may be spared from radiation injury. This article reviews the clinical application of this technique to date, and discusses the practical issues of treatment planning and delivery from the clinician's perspective.
