Intensity-Modulated Radiation Therapy (IMRT) performs high-quality treatment through inverse planning calculations. Higher radiation doses can be delivered directly to tumors, while surrounding organs and tissues are protected. This precise treatment requires more elaborate treatment planning and validation, as well as longer treatment time. In general, the IMRT technique is more suitable for tumors with irregular shapes or that are close to critical organs. Lower doses to critical normal tissues may translate into less complications and side effects. For example, in the case of head and neck tumors, IMRT minimizes radiation exposure to the spinal cord, optic nerves, salivary glands and other critical structures. These advantages of dose distribution cannot be achieved by traditional three- dimensional conformal radiation therapy (3D-CRT). Most importantly, the execution of a successful IMRT treatment requires good equipment and a strong, experienced team that includes physicians, physicists, and therapists. Our team can provide you the best service with this technique.
