IGRT There is Always Hope, There is Always a Cure Rate


Image-Guided Radiation Therapy (IGRT)

Beverly Oncology & Imaging provides IGRT to treat tumors in areas of the body that are more difficult to treat. It is difficult to obtain precision when treating tumors in the lungs, for example, because of their constant movement. With image-guided radiation therapy, we can see the affected area with much more clarity, and thereby greatly improve accuracy when applying external beam radiation to the body.

Our radiation oncologists are experienced front runners in their field, and have been providing cutting edge cancer treatment for decades. To learn more about how you can benefit from IGRT, contact us today.

How IGRT Works

Before your radiation treatment, we will meet with you in a planning session that involves taking preliminary scans, such as CT scans, of the cancerous area. These scans will be submitted to a radiotherapy planning computer, which will then design radiation beams for your unique procedure. The program creates beams that follow the shape of your tumor and accommodates for surrounding tissue. This state-of-the-art technology reduces risk during radiation treatment.

Our linear accelerator (LINAC) machines that deliver radiation are equipped with IGRT technology so that our radiation therapist can see the inside of your body clearly while delivering the radiation treatment.

Benefits of IGRT include:

  • Allows for a higher dosage of radiation, as we are able to more precisely target the cancer itself
  • We can avoid hitting normal tissue with the beams, and only destroy the tumor itself.
  • Reduces radiation side effects
