Radiation Therapy in SonoraRadiation room

A powerful way to treat cancer

Intensity-modulated radiation therapy (IMRT) is a powerful cancer-fighting technology. Overseen by board-certified radiation oncologists, this therapy targets cancer cells while limiting radiation to important normal tissues.

In IMRT, very small beams or beamlets with varying intensities can be aimed at a tumor from many angles. The intensity of each beamlet can be controlled. The radiation dose can be made to bend around important normal tissues in a way that is impossible with traditional radiation techniques.
