Volumetric planning in the form of proton therapy, intensity-modulated radiation therapy (IMRT), and three-dimensional (3D) conformal therapy is the standard technique for definitive craniospinal irradiation (CSI) and boost radiation therapy for medulloblastoma. These volumetric methods each can be delivered using a number of techniques; however, accurate delineation of target volumes is universally required.
