3-D CONFORMAL RADIATION THERAPY

Home / For Patients / Technology / 3-D CONFORMAL RADIATION THERAPY

3-D Conformal Therapy allows us to shape the radiation beam around the tumor thereby limiting exposure to normal healthy tissues.  3-D Conformal Therapy involves the use of Computer Tomography (CT) images to construct a 3-D computer-generated re-creation of the internal organs and the tumor. This allows the radiation oncologist to target the treatment area while minimizing side effects.
