Abstract

Over the past 20 years advances in radiological technology have led to dramatic changes in cervical cancer management. External beam radiotherapy has evolved radically as a result of these changes. More recently, though, three-dimensional (3D) image guidance and volume-based prescribing has been adopted into cervical cancer brachytherapy. This overview covers the science and technology behind magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)-guided adaptive brachytherapy and explains why it is now considered the new international standard of care.
