Treatment and Support
- Hormonal Therapy
- Biological Targeted Therapy
- 3-Dimensioned Conformal Radiation Therapy (3DRT)
3D conformal radiation therapy is a cancer treatment that shapes the radiation beams to match the shape of the tumor. Conformal radiation therapy uses the targeting information to focus precisely on the tumor, while avoiding the healthy surrounding tissue.
- Intensity Modulated Radiotherapy (IMRT)
Intensity modulate radiotherapy is a type of conformal radiotherapy that shaped the radiation beams to closely fit the area of the cancer. Each radiotherapy beam is divided into many small beamlets that can vary the intensity of radiation. This allows different doses of radiations to be given across the tumor. This means that the tumor received a very high dose and normal healthy cells nearby receive a much lower dose.
- Volumetric Arc Therapy (VMAT)
Volumetric Arc Therapy (VMAT) or sometimes called as Rapid Arc, is a type of IMRT technique. For VMAT the machine rotates around the patient during a radiotherapy bam in arc shape. The machine continuously reshapes and changes the intensity of the radiation beam as it moves around the body. Giving the radiotherapy in this way makes it very accurate, shortens the treatment time and uses a lower overall dose of radiation.
- Image-Guided Radiotherapy (IGRT)
Image-Guided Radiotherapy (IGRT) is the use of frequent imaging during a course of radiation therapy for the purpose of improving the precision and accuracy of the delivery of radiation treatment.
- Cancer pain and symptom management
- Supportive care
