The images are then used by physicists or dosimetrists to create a treatment plan. The images acquired are imported into treatment planning software and a virtual simulation is performed, during which beam orientation and field size are defined. The treatment is delivered in one or multiple fractions using static (coplanar or noncoplanar) beams or arcs. 8 shows a Varian LINAC machine. 8 Varian LINAC machine. ” The radiation produced in the machine head is collimated and directed toward the area to be treated.

Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) gives information about the structure and function of the body, using data such as concentration, mobility, and the chemical bonding of hydrogen. All this information is essential for the early detection, diagnosis, and treatment of disease. Contrast agents are media often used during medical imaging examinations to highlight specific parts of the body and make them easier to see. , as a drink, injected, or delivered through an intravenous line or an enema). The contrast agents used for CT imaging are high-atomic-number substances such as iodine or barium sulfate, while paramagnetic substances such as gadolinium are most often used for MRI.

The US waveform is a short pulse, characterized by the peak frequency and the bandwidth. The US beamwidth at the focal point of the transducer and the depth of focus are linearly proportional to the US wavelength. If the US frequency increases, the wavelength decreases, so the beamwidth and pulse duration decrease; consequently, the US axial and lateral resolutions, assessed by the minimum separation of two point targets when their images could just be distinguished, improve. Axial resolution is the minimum separation between two interfaces located parallel to the beam so that they can be imaged as two different interfaces.
