Abstract

This article reviews the current role of radiation in the treatment of gastrointestinal malignancies and discusses the data supporting its use. Radiation treatment in this setting continues to evolve with the increasing implementation of more conformal delivery techniques. Further scientific investigation is needed to establish the optimal role of radiation and to better define its integration with novel systemic and biologic modalities.
