IMRT for stomach cancer

IMRT for stomach cancer

If you have previously had radiation therapy for stomach cancer and are experiencing recurrent tumors in the treated area, IMRT may be an option for you.

Compared to standard radiotherapy, IMRT allows our radiation oncologists to use higher radiation doses than traditional therapies would allow in these areas. At the same time, IMRT helps to spare more of the surrounding healthy stomach tissue from harmful doses of radiation.
