Intensity Modulated Radiation Therapy (IMRT) is an advanced form of external beam radiation therapy. Through specialized computer technologies, it allows maximum precision and radiation intensity for targeting the tumor while minimizing the radiation dose delivered to the surrounding normal tissue. It does this by continuously adjusting the intensity of the radiation beam. IMRT helps the Radiation Oncologists at Ocean Radiation Oncology treat even the most complex-shaped tumors, as well as those that are near critical normal body structures. This may contribute to improved tumor targeting while minimizing side effects.
