Intensity Modulated Radiation Therapy (IMRT) is an advanced form of 3-D Conformal Radiation Therapy that allows radiation to be exactly contoured to the shape of the tumor. IMRT can increase the rate of tumor control while significantly reducing adverse side effects. This technique allows for a higher dose of radiation to be given to the tumor versus other radiation techniques, and currently is the most precise treatment available.
