Intensity Modulated Radiation Therapy (IMRT)

An advanced version of 3D conformal radiation therapyis called intensity modulated radiation therapy, or IMRT.

Similar to 3D conformal radiation therapy, IMRT is highly accurate at treatment delivery. Its further advantage is that IMRT can control the precision of the radiation dose delivery and allow it to drop off more rapidly than with 3D conformal radiation therapy.

In some diseases, such as prostate cancer, higher radiation doses with IMRT now allow better tumor control than was possible before. In carefully selected cases, this technology has allowed radiation oncologists to make a meaningful difference to improve the outcomes for patients.

Currently, Radiation Oncology Associates provides IMRT at all of our locations in New Hampshire and Massachusetts:
