The success of highly conformal radiotherapy techniques in the sparing of normal tissues or in dose escalation, or both, relies heavily on excellent imaging. Because of its superior soft tissue contrast, magnetic resonance imaging is increasingly being used in radiotherapy treatment planning. This review discusses the current clinical evidence to support the pivotal role of magnetic resonance imaging in radiation oncology.
