Abstract

Despite the significant advancement in radiation therapy techniques and tremendous efforts to deliver most of the radiation dose to the tumor, adjacent normal tissues may still be affected during radiotherapy. Familiarity with the specific type of radiation therapy, timing after radiation therapy, and the spectrum of imaging findings associated with radiation injury is crucial for the correct interpretation of imaging studies.
