    Image-Guided Radiation Therapy

    Image-guided radiation therapy (IGRT), combines x-ray imaging and IMRT treatment capabliites on a single machine. IGRT allows tracking of the tumor at the time of treatment, and the ability to make fine adjustments to the patient's positioning so as to greatly increase the precision and accuracy of the radiation therapy treatment.

    IGRT is well suited for the treatment of tumors virtually anywhere in the body, including those areas that are affected by respiratory motion.
