The efficacy of radiotherapy is dependent on its precision and accuracy. Increasingly conformal, modulated radiation fields can be reproducibly delivered to small, complex volumes within the human body. However, treatment is not without uncertainty. This thesis focuses on limitations in radiotherapy accuracy due to uncertainty in delineation of the volume requiring treatment.
