- PreviewImportance of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) in radiation therapy (RT) is on a rapid advance. When compared with present and prevalent X-ray based image-guided radiotherapy (IGRT), the MRI reveals greater soft-tissue contrast without supplementary dose to the patient. Consecutive imaging through MR is expected to obtain high accuracy therapies, simplify adaptive radiotherapy techniques, and to track the tumor movement [1–4].
