Doctors at OHC use the highly-advanced precision and accuracy of image-guided radiation therapy (IGRT). IGRT is designed to treat tumors in the lungs, liver, and prostate gland, and tumors located close to critical organs and tissues.
Radiation therapy machines are equipped with imaging technology that allow your OHC doctor to get a picture of the tumor before and during treatment. By comparing these pictures, your OHC doctor adjusts your position and/or the radiation beams to more precisely target the radiation dose to the tumor.
If your OHC doctor orders IGRT as part of your treatment, he or she will take time to explain in detail how it will be used in your care plan. For more information about IGRT, call us at 1-800-710-4674.
