The treatment options for recurrent tumors are limited. Re irradiation is being increasingly considered as an option, in view of the advances in treatment techniques, particularly the ability to document doses, overlay plans, intensity modulation, and image guidance. preclinical and clinical studies has been to estimate the total cumulative doses (EQD2) also termed as normalized total dose (NTD) that can be delivered to various tissues. In this review article reirradiation radiobiology of different tissues and dose fractionation have been discussed.
