IMRT or Intensity Modulated Radiation Therapy uses special machinery that delivers tiny focused beams of radiation while it rotates around the patient’s body. The beams continuously change shape and size to conform to the shape and size of the tumor while avoiding vital structures in the body. Computer software controls (modulates) the intensity of the radiation.
