3-D Conformal Radiation Therapy

"Three dimensional" means the treatment is based on a CT scan of the region to be treated, so we can use computer software to determine how the patient will appear from any desired direction. This lets the Radiation Therapy team choose optimal approaches for the radiation beams.

"Conformal" means that the beams are custom shaped to maximize the treatment of the disease while minimizing the radiation given to healthy tissues.

A sophisticated device (multileaf collimator) is used to block radiation from entering areas that need protection.
