Image Guided Radiotherapy

Image Guided Radiotherapy

Image-guided radiation therapy (IGRT) is a mode of radiation therapy that is done by incorporating imaging techniques during each treatment session. This radiation therapy uses high-energy beams of radiation to control cancer and noncancerous tumors. IGRT ensures powerful radiation which is narrowly focused at the treatment area.
When undergoing IGRT, high-quality images are taken before each radiation session. IGRT increases the probability of tumor control, that may make it possible to use higher doses of radiation and typically results in shorter treatment schedules. It is used to treat all types of cancer.
