Image Guided Radiation Therapy (IGRT) in Lagos
Image Guided Radiation Therapy (IGRT) is the most advanced technology for tracking cancer while sparing healthy tissues. The radiation exposure to normal tissue is reduced with IGRT technology, which reduces side effects and improves results.
Since more accurate location information is available, a smaller radiation field may be used, reducing the risk of the radiation zapping healthy tissue near the tumour. That means there would be less “collateral damage” to healthy tissue. IGRT, like the Cyber Knife, is a “high-precision laser scope” that improves the precision and accuracy of the radiation.
