About this Research Topic
The aim of the Research Topic is to highlight the benefits and limitations of this new approach based on radiation oncologist and cardiologist’s point of view. We welcome Original Research as well as Case Report, Case series, Clinical Trial, Hypothesis and Theory, Methods, Perspective, Systematic Review.
Potential topics for the Research Topic include, but are not limited to:
1) Clinical inclusion criteria to STAR.
2) Pre-STAR treatment planning evaluation and of cardiac target volume definition: imaging tools for arrhythmia activation and substrate mapping and cardiac CT/MRI target delineation and merging.
3) STAR technical troubleshooting: total dose prescription, reference isodose prescription, cardiac volume and vulnerable intra and extracardiac structures, dose constraints, organ motion management, treatment delivery techniques, different delivery systems (Linac,
Cyberknife, Tomotherapy, MRguided Linacs; Proton-therapy and other solutions).
4) Clinical and Device Follow–up: time and modalities.
