This book is intended to bring forward the recent advancements in the field of radiation oncology. It presents the experience of several researchers who dedicate many hours a day to not only treat patients but also assess the physical aspects of newer radiotherapy facilities.

This textbook is designed to help the busy radiation oncologist to accurately and confidently delineate tumor volumes for conformal radiation therapy (including IMRT).

The book provides an atlas of clinical target volumes (CTVs) for commonly encountered cancers, with each chapter illustrating CTV. Radiation Therapy Alone.
