15: Applied External Photon Beam Radiotherapy

Newer technologies have developed for external beam radiotherapy over the past 20-30 years, including 3D conformal radiotherapy, IMRT, IGRT, and stereotactic radiotherapy/radiosurgery. Other rare techniques are not covered in the Phase I curriculum, such as total body irradiation. As a consultant radiation oncologist, doctors need to understand the principles and appliactions of all these treatments.
