Abstract

In order to be able to plan radiotherapy and control its effects in treating gynaecological tumours, the location of the tumour relative to the neighbouring organs and tissues as well as its possible spreading must be ascertained first. Consequently this chapter is divided into three parts dealing with a) the radiodiagnostic methods available for locating the tumour, b) the choice of the therapeutic method and c) the manner of administering the therapy and the possible effects of the radiation doses on the adjacent tissues and organs.
