This
book provides the reader with an in-depth knowledge of physics principles and technology
of  Image Guided Radiotherapy (IGRT) that
is changing the way radiotherapy is practiced. 
The book aims to cover from the historical methods of using radiographic
films for image guidance to the recent state of the art Magnetic Resonance
image guided Radiotherapy (MRgRT) thus providing the reader an historical
perspective to the evolution of IGRT technology.  Each
chapter provides the physics principles, the technological development and the
image guidance workflow and the quality assurance procedures as required. The
book is aimed at academics and students of medical physics and radiation
oncology as well as the other disciplines that use radiation treatment such as
neurosurgery.
