Intensity-Modulated Radiation Therapy (IMRT)
IMRT uses varying intensity within individual radiation beams to achieve organ-sparing treatment that minimizes the radiation exposure to surrounding healthy tissues.
The treatment team uses sophisticated software and hardware to vary the shape and intensity of radiation beams. The beams can "paint" and even wrap around tumors with prescribed dose intensity patterns customized to the tumor shape.
Higher, more effective doses of radiation can be delivered precisely, allowing physicians to treat hard-to-reach targets, including tumors intertwined with vital organs, ensuring fewer side effects and better results for you.
