This paper reviews existing techniques to deliver radiotherapy treatment and describes the requirements from a control engineering view point to adapt radiation delivery to organs motion. The first part describes recent evolution of radiotherapy research; the second part focuses on imaging modalities used in radiotherapy; the third part reviews image processing techniques to detect organ movement; the final section compares traditional PID with predictive control strategies for use in patient positioning devices.
