Image Guided Radiation Therapy (IGRT) Overview

Image-Guided Radiation Therapy combines imaging, such as CT scans, with radiation therapy during each treatment session. This allows your radiation therapy treatment team to confirm and track movement of the tumor at the time of treatment and make fine adjustments to your position — increasing the precision of your therapy and minimizing the risk of side effects.

This image-guided approach is used in the delivery of 3D-Conformal Radiation Therapy, Intensity-Modulated Radiation Therapy (IMRT), Tomotherapy, Stereotactic Radiosurgery (SRS) and Stereotactic Body Radiotherapy (SBRT).
