IMRT

IMRT | Intensity Modulated Radiation Therapy Intensity Modulated Radiation Therapy, or IMRT radiation, is a revolutionary delivery technology that allows the Radiation Oncologists at Advanced Radiation Centers to conform, or shape, the radiation high dose region into a highly 3-Dimensional manner. Before IMRT radiation existed, a radiation plan involved two to five or more…

Breast Brachytherapy

Breast Brachytherapy | Partial Breast Irradiation Brachytherapy means “close” therapy. Breast brachytherapy involves placing a small radiation source into the breast, close to the tissue at risk. The source stays in a specialized catheter (SAVI, Contura or Mammosite) for a short period of time (several minutes), delivering radiation in and around the…
