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
