The last decade has shown breathtaking developments in radiotherapy. As a local and organ-preserving method, radiation oncology as a discipline is changing its paradigm to more sophisticated, precise treatments rather than largefield irradiations. A radiation beam is more like a scalpel in the era of hypofractionated and ablative doses. It becomes increasingly possible to escalate the fractional and total doses without increasing toxicity; toxicity may even decrease. While early clinical results with these new technologies are very satisfactory, evidence-based longterm results are anticipated.
