[The presence in our body of a rich network of lymph vessels and numerous lymph node stations prompted several authors to draw up classifications that would take into account lymph drainage pathways in the various districts and would be useful for describing tumor progression pathways.]
[With the introduction in clinical practice of new radiological imaging techniques such as computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) the need was felt to transfer onto CT scans the anatomical boundaries of lymph node stations as described by surgeons.]
[In the treatment planning of radiation therapy, the positioning and immobilization of the patient established when preparing CT simulation are especially important. For all treatment modalities, a key requirement is to place the patient in a comfortable, reproducible position that enables both...
[Exciting advances have taken place in oncology, including enhanced knowledge of molecular biology and genetics, functional imaging (positron emission tomography scanning), image-guided radiation therapy and robotic surgery, increased use of monoclonal antibodies, as well as molecular targeted...
