Magnetic resonance (MR) imaging plays an important role in modern radiotherapy. The benefits of MR as compared with those of computed tomography for the definition of target volumes is evident for many soft tissue tumor types. It has been suggested that for these patient groups, the computed tomography examination is unnecessary as part of the preparation for radiotherapy. Here, we review the rationale for an MR-only radiotherapy work flow, as well as the technical challenges and solutions connected to it.
