Abstract

Carcinoma cervix is a common cancer among Indian women. Evidence based management is essential for best practice in treatment of carcinoma cervix for its effective control. The current imaging system like CT, MRI and PET CT scans have contributed in identifying the patients for optimal treatment and delivering treatment accurately. For stages IB2 to IV, concurrent chemoradiation is advocated with improvement in overall survival proven with randomized trials. Brachytherapy is an integral part in the radiation treatment. Imaged-guided brachytherapy using MRI is desirable, however less expensive imaging modalities such as CT and ultrasonography has been evaluated. In special situation such as for HIV positive patients and patients with neuroendocrine tumors have role of radiotherapy. For further improvement in control of cancer, it is required to integrate basic research to answer clinically relevant questions.
