The versatile Varian iX system delivers 3D conformal radiotherapy and IMRT utilizing image guidance.
Three-dimensional (3D) conformal radiotherapy utilizes special imaging techniques to define the size, shape and location of the tumor as well as normal tissue. Your radiation oncologist can precisely design the radiation beams to the size and shape of your tumor while avoiding normal tissue using the multi-leaf collimator.
Intensity Modulated Radiation Therapy (IMRT) is a specialized form of 3D Conformal Radiotherapy in which the radiation dose is delivered using small “beamlets.” The intensity of each beamlet can be optimized to create a customized treatment plan based upon your specific needs. For some treatments image guidance may be used localize the tumor immediately before treatment delivery.
