Radiation Therapy

Intensity Modulated Radiation Therapy (IMRT)

IMRT is a cancer treatment whereby the radiation beam is carefully sculpted around a patient's anatomy to lessen the amount of radiation delivered to the area of concentration. Pre-op and Post-op Adjuvant IMRT, and IMRT to anal and nodal targets, are available to colorectal cancer patients.
