Sometimes, planning radiation therapy requires more than one type of imaging. Using sophisticated software, ultrasound, CT, MRI, and PET scans can be fused to spare more healthy tissue or to more accurately define the tumor. IGRT is used routinely for treating certain diseases, and as diagnostic radiology continues to find better ways to distinguish between normal and tumor tissue doctors may be able to offer more effective treatment with less side effects. ROA offers this innovative approach to treatment routinely for selected cases where multiple types of imaging or higher precision is needed.
