Intensity-modulated radiation therapy (IMRT) targets certain types of cancers more effectively and more accurately than conventional radiation therapy. It is an advanced cancer treatment available at Einstein.
Using a Varian Trilogy linear accelerator, your physician applies varying degrees of radiation that are shaped, or modulated, to the three-dimensional form of your tumor. The process enables your physician to apply doses of radiation right where they are needed.
This superior level of accuracy minimizes damage to surrounding healthy organs or tissue.
IMRT is most often used to treat prostate, head and neck and central nervous system cancers. It can also be used to treat breast, gastrointestinal, lung and gynocological cancers.
