Intensity-modulated radiation therapy (IMRT) targets certain types of cancers more effectively and more accurately than conventional radiation therapy.
Accuracy that minimizes damage to surrounding healthy tissue. 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.
Individualized Care. Your team prescribes the appropriate treatment volume and dosage, calculates the optimal amount of time for IMRT treatment sessions and helps you feel comfortable throughout the process.
IMRT is most often used to treat prostate and head and neck cancers. It can also be used to treat breast, gastrointestinal, lung and gynecological cancers.
