Image-guided radiation therapy
Image-guided radiation therapy (IGRT) is the process of frequent two and three-dimensional imaging, during a course of radiation treatment, used to direct radiation therapy utilising the imaging coordinates of the actual radiation treatment plan. The patient is localised in the treatment room in the same position as planned from the reference imaging dataset. The links shown on this page feature the key word ′Image-guided radiation therapy’ in their stories:
