In this thesis locally advanced cervical cancer patients were treated with adaptive radiotherapy in an online plan-of-the-day protocol. A daily in-room CBCT scan is used to select from a patient specific plan library a treatment plan that best fits the observed anatomy for that day. Main goal is to reduce unnecessary radiation dose to healthy tissue. Different aspects were investigated.
