For many cancer patients, lengthy courses of treatment mean major interruptions in their normal lives. Because Trilogy delivers higher doses of radiation in less time than other radiation methods, treatment times are significantly reduced for most patients. For example, a course of treatment that would last six to seven weeks using another radiation technology would only take one week to complete using Trilogy. In addition, Trilogy's ability to treat smaller areas means less radiation-related side effects for patients. Radiation can be directed at the cancerous tissues without damaging the normal, surrounding tissue.
