Intensity Modulated Radiation Therapy (IMRT)

IMRT is an external beam treatment technique that allows the radiation oncologist to completely customize the radiation treatment plan to each individual patient.

With the aid of sophisticated IMRT treatment planning software, the radiation oncologist specifies the radiation dose to the cancer and simultaneously set limits on the dose to the healthy organs. The result is an IMRT treatment plan that carefully paints the cancer with a high dose of radiation, which results in a highly effective and precise way to kill cancer.
