Intensity-Modulated Radiation Therapy
Sharp HealthCare offers intensity-modulated radiation therapy (IMRT) to patients. Computer-controlled linear accelerators can be manipulated to deliver the radiation beam in the 3-D shape of the tumor, thus minimizing the effect on nearby tissue. With this targeted ability, the intensity of the radiation can also be adjusted during treatment, something not possible with conventional radiation.
