      The CT scanner has been of great value in the diagnosis, treatment, and follow-up of patients with cancer l of the breast, cervix, and endometrium. It has increased the ability to evaluate the tumor and treatment volume and give an expanded perception of the relationship of the tumor volume, normal tissue, and isodose distributions in the treatment planning of patients with cancer.
