Adaptive Radiation Therapy

Adaptive Radiation Therapy (known as ART) is the foundation of the department's new treatment process. This patient-specific strategy is much better than the 3-D conformal radiation method of conventional practice. With ART, all patients receive higher-quality treatment. ART's new feedback treatment process has attracted great interest from National Cancer Institute-sponsored groups. ART can significantly decrease the amount of normal tissue receiving radiation and improves the probability of hitting the target.

Instead of acquiring just one CT scan, we obtain a series of daily CT scans for each patient during the first phase of treatment. This gives us information about how organs may move during treatment.
