How and Why Surface Guided Radiation Therapy Developed

The introduction of image-guided radiation therapy (IGRT) in the early 2000s offered major accuracy improvements to radiotherapy treatments. Linear accelerator (linac) based X-Ray imaging drastically reduced patient setup uncertainties and allowed clinicians to address inter-fraction motion. Despite these advancements, the intra-fraction imaging capabilities of linac based IGRT systems were still limited, giving rise to a […]
