Intensity Modulated Radiotherapy (IMRT)

Intensity modulated radiotherapy (IMRT) is a special radiation technique using the linear accelerator. By means of a dedicated treatment planning system which allows for optimization of applied irradiation within every treatment portal, an individual conformation of the dose distribution to the target volume and at the same time optimal sparing of the organs at risk can be achieved.

We use IMRT techniques regularly with head and neck tumors in order to spare the extremely radiation sensitive parotid glands, and also with prostate and anal carcinomas. But also in other regions of the body IMRT techniques will be employed when necessary (e.g. pre-radiation of the patient, vicinity of the tumor to organs at risk like spinal cord, bladder or kidney).
