Abstract

Past,present and prospects of intraoperative radiotherapy (IORT) was designed to overcome the limitation of surgery and radiotherapy in cancer treatment. This"direct attack"radiotherapy permits 1. accurate beam direction with field fitting, 2. precise limitation of the radiation effect to the tumor, and 3. the possibility to displace sensitive organs like skin, small intestines and lungs outside of the radiation beam. Methods and clinical results of stomach, urinary bladder, pancreas, rectum, uterine cervix and several other organs were discussed.
