Radiotherapy consists in the delivery of ionizing radiation with curative goals. It represents a major modality for treating solid malignancies in any anatomical site. It requires extremely precise dosimetry and delivery to control the lesion while sparing the surrounding normal tissue. This is currently achieved by means of a combination of techniques. Among these, mathematical modelling may contribute to design improved treatment plans. In the present work, we provide an overview of the basic features of radiotherapy. Thereafter, we describe concrete examples of how mathematical modelling has so far been employed to simulate radiotherapy and to theoretically explore alternative strategies. Open problems and possible research directions are also discussed.
