New techniques or technologies for medical treatment can be advantageous if the therapeutic window is increased. Examples of techniques to improve therapeutic window are for example the accelerated partial breast irradiation or bladder brachytherapy. Technologic advancements exist for example with designing new applicators or improvement in imaging techniques. A promising new development is modulation of direction and emission of dose intensity. New developments are expected for target definition, implantation techniques, dose planning, and dose delivery.
