The definition of the clinical target volume (CTV) is becoming the weakest link in the radiotherapy chain. In this session we will first review some of the challenges of the standard CTV definition process (the "art"). We will then present new approaches that are being developed to move CTV definition from an art to a science. These include advances in imaging to make the invisible CTV extension visible, advances in machine learning to support the clinician in defining the CTV, and developments in robust treatment planning to incorporate uncertainties of the CTV in the treatment planning process.
