Image-guided radiation therapy (IGRT) is an innovative technology that enables imaging and treatment of cancer. This capability helps increase the accuracy of radiation cancer treatments.
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 these real-time 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.
This superior accuracy enables the delivery of higher doses of radiation, which helps speed the process of controlling your cancer, while also reducing radiation to surrounding healthy tissue.
IGRT is commonly used to 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.
Einstein's Varian Trilogy linear accelerator is equipped with IGRT technology.
Einstein's team is specially trained in IGRT therapy. They customize treatment to suit your needs.
Your team of Einstein cancer specialists includes a radiation oncologist, a radiation physicist, a radiation therapist a medical dosimetrist and a radiation therapy nurse.
Your team prescribes the appropriate treatment volume and dosage, calculates the optimal amount of time for treatment sessions and helps you feel comfortable throughout the process.
