Motion management in radiation oncology is an important aspect of modern treatment planning and delivery. Special attention has been paid to control respiratory motion in recent years. However, other medical procedures related to both diagnosis and treatment are likely to benefit from the explicit control of breathing motion. Quantitative imaging - including increasingly important tools in radiology and nuclear medicine - is among the fields where a rapid development of motion control is most likely, due to the need for quantification accuracy. Emerging treatment modalities like focussed-ultrasound tumor ablation are also likely to benefit from a significant evolution of motion control in the near future. In the present article an overview of available respiratory motion systems along with ongoing research in this area is provided. Furthermore, an attempt is made to envision some of the most expected developments in this field in the near future.
