Intensity-modulated Radiation Therapy (IMRT)

Conditions Related to Intensity-Modulated Radiation Therapy (IMRT)

Cancer is the most related condition to intensity-modulated radiation therapy. IMRT is used to kill cancerous cells and control the growth of the cancers that develop most places in the body. While IMRT can be used throughout the body, some areas are more sensitive to radiation therapy. For these areas, doctors take into account the vulnerability of the tissue when planning the intensity and location of the IMRT beam.
