The rapid movement and sophisticated on-board planning technology also provides greater comfort and reduced treatment times.
Image-Guided Radiation Therapy (IGRT)
Tumors are not stationary targets; they move or change shape or size between treatments. IGRT via the Varian Trilogy with Rapid Arc™ provides daily CT scanning to consistently review the tumor’s location, shape and size. This allows a precise, high-dose of radiation to be delivered to exactly where your tumor is at each treatment with less harm to surrounding healthy tissue.
Intensity Modulated Radiation Therapy (IMRT)
IMRT’s advanced delivery accurately pinpoints radiation doses over the tissue so they wrap around the tumor and spare other tissue. This variation of the specifically designed radiation beams provides a conformal three-dimensional approach to each area to give the highest dose safely possible to the tumor and decrease treatment times
