One way to minimize radiation toxicity is to use three-dimensional conformal radiation or intensity-modulated radiation therapy
Clinical and financial issues for intensity-modulated radiation therapy
Objectives: To understand current and future use of intensity-modulated radiation therapy
(IMRT), image-guided radiation therapy (IGRT), stereotactic radiosurgery, adaptive radiotherapy, and proton therapy.
Manmohan Singh on Friday inaugurated the state-of-the-art linear accelerator with intensity-modulated radiation therapy
, image-guided radiation therapy and SRS/SRT facilities at the Dr B Borooah Cancer Institute in Guwahati.
Recognizing the multidisciplinary nature of gynecologic cancer management, the coverage includes novel radiation approaches, including intensity-modulated radiation therapy
and image-guided radiation therapy, in the planning and treatment of both external beam irradiation and brachytherapy; the role of chemotherapy and novel biologic agents; surgical approaches, such as lymphadenectomy in endometrial cancer and the emerging role of robotic-assisted surgery; and an overview of the use of magnetic resonance imaging for assessing tumor response in cervical cancer patients undergoing treatment.
The AGH study, "Preservation of Sexual Function After High-Dose Post Prostatectomy Image Guided Intensity-Modulated Radiation Therapy
(IMRT)," looked at 33 patients who underwent prostate removal surgery using open or robotic nerve-sparing techniques, followed by Image Guided IMRT radiotherapy.
Now in its second edition, this textbook for medical students and personnel has been revised to cover new physics-related principles and technologies used in state-of-theuart medical centers such as digital imaging, hybrid scanners, camera pills, robotic surgery devices, proton therapy and Intensity-Modulated Radiation Therapy
