Radiation Oncology

Intensity modulated radiation therapy or IMRT, is a radiation technique that takes advantage of recent advances in imaging and computer technology to carefully target cancerous tissue and determine the appropriate dose of radiation. Because of recent improvements in targeting affected tissues and reducing dosage to critical structures within the body, IMRT has become widely accepted as an excellent method of treatment for multiple kinds of tumors. Clinical results suggested that using IMRT both improves cancer control rates and decreases toxicity rates in certain types of tumors, including head and neck cancer, prostate cancer, and some brain tumors. The BSW Cancer Institute routinely uses IMRT for the treatment of prostate and head and neck cancer as well as other tumors in challenging locations. ​​
