Special Issue "Advanced Image-Guided Robotic Technology Based Radiosurgery for Cancers"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (30 November 2021) | Viewed by 10281
Stereotactic radiosurgery (SRS) is an effective and efficient cancer treatment. It is positioned in between surgery and conventional radiotherapy, and might replace more cumbersome traditional procedures like invasive surgery or long-lasting radiation treatments. The latest technological innovation is regarded to be image-guided robotic SRS, which is dependent on a state-of-the-art technical equipment and a dedicated training program for physicians and medical physicists to achieve best possible medical results. The development of high-resolution imaging for precise SRS treatment planning, paired with computing technology interacting with medical robots, has accelerated, increasing the accuracy of beam delivery techniques, helping to apply treatment doses with sub-millimeter accuracy. Many tumors can now be treated with dedicated SRS techniques, and recent studies show promising results for a variety of tumors from brain to spine and even for organs that move like tumors in the lung or the renal glands. As a consequence, a high disease control and quality of life for patients can often be achieved.
In this Special Issue, we aim to stimulate the global research community to submit their best data on SRS applications to further enhance our knowledge and improve our SRS outcomes throughout all parts of the body. Clinical trials are the best way to do this, as the most modern machines will always depend on knowledgeable physicians who can transform their experience into safe and effective treatment applications.
The purpose of this Special Issue is to publish or review research related to contemporary radiosurgery and future advances.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Cancers is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2400 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
