Accelerator has image guidance capability with cone beam CT to improve the
precision and accuracy of treatment delivery during each treatment
session. This is especially useful in organs that move, such as the
lungs, liver, pancreas and prostate gland.
- We offer VMAT
(Volumetric- modulated arc therapy) capability, which is an advanced form of
IMRT (intensity modulated radiation therapy). The treatment time is
shorter than conventional IMRT while still delivering precise treatment,
maximally sparing normal surrounding tissues.
