Intensity Modulated Radiation Therapy (IMRT) in Lagos
Radiation Oncologists at Advanced Radiation Centers may conform, or shape, the radiation high dose region in a highly 3-Dimensional manner using Intensity Modulated Radiation Therapy, or IMRT radiation.
Each of those beams is broken up into thousands of individual tiny “beamlets” by IMRT, giving the ARC physicians a “true colour palette” of radiation intensities to deal with, rather than only shades of grey. As a result, doctors are able to precisely shape the radiation to the exact 3-D shape of the target. As a result, IMRT can keep high radiation doses away from tissues and organs that don’t need them.
