Some of the techniques used in this type of radiotherapy include:
This is a specialised form of 3D conformal radiotherapy. As the name suggests, intensity-modulated radiation allows us to modulate the intensity of each radiation beam which is divided into thousands of beamlets, so each field may have one or many areas of high intensity radiation and any number of lower intensity areas within the same field, thus allowing for greater control of the dose distribution with the target.
IGRT is a step ahead of IMRT in which various biological and anatomical imaging techniques are integrated into the radiation therapy process. The overall goal of IGRT is to target tumours even more accurately while sparing the normal tissues .Our machines have a CT scanner with kilovoltage (kV) imaging facility capable of online and offline matching of the planned image with the treatment image accurately.
