Abstract

This publication is a resume of the GOCO Congress (Montpellier 2017). A part of this congress was about the use of MRI in clinical practice, focused on the oncology field. The role of this tool was described in diagnosis, staging of tumors, evaluation of treatment response and the future use in prognostic and investigation (radiomics). After that, in the context of the present and future uses of MRI in radiation oncology, MRI guided radiotherapy was explained, as a method that allows an increased precision in image guided treatments.
