Aim of precision radiotherapy in this era remains delivery therapeutic efficacy and minimizing toxicity for which various technical innovations have been pivotal. Regular multidisciplinary interactions between the teams of Radiation Oncology and Digital Health Innovations can lead to refinement of experimental technical ideas, leading to getting solutions for problems related to precision RT. 3D Printing is one of the areas which need to be explored further in the setting of a multidisciplinary board
