Image-guided radiation therapy (IGRT) helps increase the accuracy of radiation cancer treatments by enabling imaging and treatment of tumors.
Real-time imaging for precise targeting. IGRT lets your doctor view images of a tumor at the time of delivery of radiation therapy. Using specialized computer software, your doctor can then compare your images to those taken during the planning stages of treatment. If your tumor has shifted – perhaps due to body movement – adjustments are made for more precise targeting of radiation beams.
Faster delivery of doses. This accuracy to delivery of higher doses of radiation helps speed the process of controlling your cancer, while also reducing radiation to surrounding healthy tissue.
Einstein's Varian Trilogy linear accelerator is equipped with IGRT technology.
Individualized Care. Your team prescribes the appropriate treatment volume and dosage, calculates the optimal amount of time for IGRT treatment sessions and helps you feel comfortable throughout the process.
IGRT treat cancers in areas of the body that are prone to movement, such as the lungs and the prostate gland, as well as tumors near critical organs and tissues.
