Image-guided Radiation Therapy

The majority of those who receive a cancer diagnosis receive radiotherapy, a proven and successful method for destroying cancer cells’ ability to reproduce. And through Image Guided Radiation Therapy, or IGRT, this cancer fighting technique can be delivered with greater precision, which spares healthy tissue while targeting more energy on malignant tissue. Because of its effectiveness, Florida Hospital’s nationally recognized cancer programs and oncology experts utilize IGRT to reduce cancerous growths throughout the body.
