Intensity Modulated Radiation Therapy for Vaginal Cancer
Intensity modulated radiation therapy (IMRT) is a state-of-the-art radiation delivery system. IMRT treats difficult-to-reach vaginal cancers with greater precision than conventional radiation. As a result, our radiation oncologists are able to use higher radiation doses with less damage to the surrounding healthy tissue.
Intensity modulated radiation therapy differs from other forms of radiation therapy in several important ways. IMRT:
- Uses powerful, advanced software to more accurately plan and deliver a precise dose of radiation, based on tumor size, shape and location.
- Delivers radiation in sculpted doses that match the exact 3D geometrical shape of the tumor, including concave and complex shapes.
- Adjusts the intensity of radiation beams across the treatment area as needed with laser accuracy.
