IMRT for bone cancer
If you have previously had radiation therapy for bone cancer and are experiencing recurrent tumors in the treated area, intensity modulated radiation therapy
(IMRT) may be an option for you.
Compared to standard radiotherapy, IMRT allows a radiation oncologists to use higher radiation doses than traditional therapies would allow in these areas. At the same time, IMRT may help to spare more of the surrounding healthy tissue from harmful doses of radiation.
