Image-Guided Intensity Modulated Radiation Therapy (IMRT) is one of the major advances in the 100-year evolutionary development of the specialty of radiation oncology.  IMRT provides the precision of the urologists knife with the gentle touch of the artist’s paint brush.  This gives us the ability to precisely conform and modulate the intensity of the radiation beam according to the exact 3D tumor size, shape and metabolic activity with avoidance of surrounding critical structures.

Using this technique, we can now treat tumors safely with higher doses of radiation, which should result in improved cure rates.
