Abstract

Progress in radiation oncology has been significant during the last decade and will continue to undergo even more dynamic development in the decade to come [1], [2], [3] and [4]. Cancer is recognized as one of the major diseases with increasing frequency and relevance not only in the western world but also from the global perspective [5]. One major reason is the aging population, which provides great challenges with respect to management and maintaining the quality of life. In this respect radiation oncology, as a minimally invasive procedure, will provide a real opportunity to achieve this.
