IMRT

Intensity Modulated Radiation Therapy (IMRT) uses advanced software to plan a precise dose of radiation, based on tumor size, shape and location. The linear accelerator delivers radiation in sculpted doses that match the exact 3D geometrical shape of the tumor, including concave and complex shapes.

With IMRT, radiation oncologist Mike Harmon, MD and his colleagues can adjust the intensity of radiation beams across the treatment area as needed with laser accuracy, “it allows for pinpoint accuracy when targeting tumors, while at the same time greatly reducing the radiation dose to healthy, vital tissues,” says Harmon.
