At Tampa Bay Radiation Oncology in Florida, radiation therapy is used to treat many kinds of cancer successfully. To maximize treatment effectiveness, our Tampa, Florida radiation group uses image guided radiation therapy or IGRT. This advanced radiotherapy treatment targets the cancer more precisely and spares more of the surrounding healthy tissue.
At our Florida radiation oncology clinics, frequent imaging is used before, during and after image guided radiation therapy sessions to determine whether the tumor has moved or changed in size or shape. Ongoing adjustments can then be made during the course of radiotherapy treatment to zero in on the cancer tumor with greater accuracy and optimal radiation doses.
The benefits of IGRT for our Florida radiation patients include potential for greater tumor control, less toxicity, less radiation of normal tissue and shorter treatment schedules.
