Modern Radio Therapy

How do Modern Radiotherapy Techniques optimise cancer outcomes?

  • By providing superior toxicity profile in existing successful treatment settings, eg IMRT reduces xerostomia (dryness of mouth) in head-neck cancer
  • By enabling superior tumor control in existing treatment settings, eg IMRT & IGRT enable dose escalation in prostate cancer, leading to superior disease control
  • By providing disease control solutions in innovative treatment settings, eg SBRT for hepatocellular carcinoma
