How is IMRT administered?

Intensity modulated radiation therapy or IMRT is one of the most advanced treatment methods available in external beam radiation therapy. When this treatment is administered, beams of radiation strike the tumor target after passing through a component in the IMRT machine which acts much like a filter.

Besides, what is IMRT technique?

Intensity-modulated radiotherapy (IMRT) uses linear accelerators to safely and painlessly deliver precise radiation doses to a tumor while minimizing the dose to surrounding normal tissue. Your radiation oncologist will speak with you to determine whether IMRT is the most appropriate treatment for you.
