Intensity Modulated Radiation Therapy (IMRT)


Intensity Modulated Radiation Therapy (IMRT) is an advanced form of radiation therapy that is used to treat difficult-to-reach tumors. IMRT uses state-of-the-art technology to manipulate beams of radiation to curve around the shape of a tumor. By using the linear accelerator, we are able to deliver radiation doses that are able to precisely treat the exact geometrical shape of the tumor.

With IMRT, your radiation oncologist can adjust the intensity of radiation beams across the treatment area as needed with pinpoint accuracy. This means we can deliver higher radiation doses than traditional radiation therapy methods, while minimizing exposure to healthy tissue.
