Rapid Arc radiation therapy is a technique that combines intensity-modulated radiation therapy (IMRT) with rotational arc delivery from the radiation machine (linear accelerator). The treatment consists of a 360-degree rotation of the machine's head (accelerator's gantry) with the beam focused on the target. This dynamic use of software and hardware makes it the most sophisticated treatment delivery techniques.
Rapid Arc allows for a higher dose of radiation to be used to destroy cancer cells while sparing healthy tissue from damage. This technology is significantly faster than conventional radiation therapy and more targeted, and patients typically have fewer side effects from radiation delivered via Rapid Arc.
Rapid Arc is used for patients with prostate, Lung Cancer, spine, brain, head, and neck cancers.
The ongoing focus on improving cancer treatments has contributed to significant advancements that will enhance the quality of life and increase the number of cancer survivors.
