This book focuses on recent advances in treatment delivery technology through IMRT and tomotherapy. It presents the current status of the biological, physical/technical and clinical aspects of volume effects on time, dose and fractionation schemes for radiation treatment of cancer patients and the several parametric models (both explanatory and predictive) of the effects thereof, with regard to optimization of treatment delivery, verification, and adaptation are discussed along with the impact of these new tools on biological modeling, tumor control and normal tissue toxicity.
