Intraoperative Radiation Therapy
IORT represents a significant improvement over traditional radiation therapy as cancerous tissue can be removed with high accuracy and healthy tissues and organs can be protected during surgery.
The use of IORT results in a more effective radiation dose directly to the tumor bed, with less actual radiation to normal tissues, versus conventional radiation treatments. IORT treatment is rapidly becoming the standard for cancer care in Europe and throughout the world.
HOW DOES IT WORK
As the resection is completed, the surgeon measures the precise location of cancerous cells while ensuring the health of surrounding tissue and prepares the Tumor bed for the treatment. Once the collimator has been placed in the defined area, the unit delivers the precise electron dose needed to destroy the cancer cells. At the end of the treatment, cancerous cells have been eradicated from the affected area.
