Intensity Modulated Radiation Therapy (IMRT)

Inten­si­ty Mod­u­lat­ed Radi­a­tion Ther­a­py (IMRT) is an advanced form of radi­a­tion ther­a­py that is used to treat dif­fi­cult-to-reach tumors. IMRT uses state-of-the-art tech­nol­o­gy to manip­u­late beams of radi­a­tion to curve around the shape of a tumor. By using the lin­ear accel­er­a­tor, we are able to deliv­er radi­a­tion dos­es that are able to pre­cise­ly treat the exact geo­met­ri­cal shape of the tumor.

With IMRT, your radi­a­tion oncol­o­gist can adjust the inten­si­ty of radi­a­tion beams across the treat­ment area as need­ed with pin­point accu­ra­cy. This means we can deliv­er high­er radi­a­tion dos­es than tra­di­tion­al radi­a­tion ther­a­py meth­ods, while min­i­miz­ing expo­sure to healthy tissue.
