What is Radiotherapy RapidArc?
Radiotherapy RapidArc is a new state-of-art technology of image guided used to improves tumor targeting. It is an extremely fast and precise form of IMRT ot sometimes known as Intensity-Modulated Radiation Therapy.
IMRT shapes the dose of the radiation in order to conform closely to the 3D shape of your tumor. With that being said, it means more radiation accurately gets delivered to the tumor and potentially less to the nearby healthy tissues. This medical device works in rotation 360 degrees around you and targets cancer cells within 2 to 3 minutes.
