Image-guided radiation therapy (IGRT)
Image Guided Radiotherapy (IGRT) is another innovative method of treatment that is used in our Center. With this method of treatment, a three-dimensional image is generated during the irradiation (obtaining slices with the help of the so-called Cone Beam-CT), so that the accuracy of the irradiation fields can be monitored.
At the same time, an even higher irradiation accuracy can be achieved, which significantly reduces the risk of side effects. Simultaneously, the effect of treatment is improved. In particular, with stereotaxic irradiation of lung tumors or metastases in the brain, this method provides great advantages. But even with the irradiation of the prostate, this method helps to increase safety and, therefore, better protect the organs adjacent to the tumor, such as the intestine and bladder.
