Image-Guided Radiation Therapy  in Nallagandla, Hyderabad

Image-guided radiation therapy (IGRT) is a kind of radiation therapy that implies imaging techniques during each treatment.

Radiation therapy is used with high-energy radiation beams to control cancer and noncancerous tumors. IGRT ensures the powerful radiation is narrowly focused on the treatment area by adding detailed images.

During IGRT, high-quality images are taken before each radiation therapy treatment session. IGRT makes it possible to use higher doses of radiation, which increases the probability of tumor control.

IGRT is the standard of care for radiation therapy treatment and is used to treat all types of cancer.

Why IGRT is used?

IGRT is used to treat all types of cancer, but it's ideal for tumors and cancers located very close to sensitive structures and organs.

IGRT benefits

  • Accurate delivery of radiation
  • Improved definition and monitoring of tumor position and shape before and during treatment
  • The possibility of higher, targeted radiation dosage to enhance tumor control
  • Decrease radiation exposure to normal tissue surrounding the tumor

High-quality images are taken before each radiation therapy treatment session and radiation therapy team compares these images to previously taken images, to determine if the tumor is in the correct position, to precisely target it with radiation.
