Radiation oncology or radiotherapy is an eminently clinical specialty responsible in the epidemiology, prevention, pathogenesis, clinical presentation, diagnosis, treatment and prognostic assessment of neoplasms, based on ionizing radiation. Modern technology (advances in diagnostic imaging, evolution of computing, massive improvements and incorporating different systems of tracking and tracing in linear accelerators) allows treatment to be more and more accurate, less harmful to the patient and consequently more effective.
