IMRT: Intensity modulated radiation therapy

  Intensive modular radiation therapy (IMRT-Intensity modulated radiation therapy) is the most accurate and promising method for three-dimensional external beam radiation therapy in Israel. This technology makes it possible, using an advanced computer system, identify the precise boundaries of the tumor, and to calculate the most effective dose of radiation, which is produced in modern accelerators.

  In intensive modular radiation therapy uses the visualization and graphics devices for constructing a three-dimensional image of the tumor, which can recognize the tumor in healthy tissue.

   Through this method of radiation therapy in Israel able to find the exact dose of radiation and direct it at the source of the tumor, thereby protecting healthy tissue from the effects of radiation. At the same time, the dose of radiation, aimed directly to the tumor increases. In the treatment of this technology patients experience fewer side effects and retains the adjacent tissues and organs.

  To converse radiotherapy in Israel is carried out by the method of IMRT simulation, in which with the help of a special unit is set to the exact boundaries of the tumor. After the results of the simulation creates a 3-dimensional map of irradiation, calculated radiant intensity and direction. External radiotherapy IMRT method is no different than traditional radiation therapy duration 1-2 months, the duration of the session - 15 minutes. Regimen in Israel by this method varies depending on the type of cancer and stage of development.

IGRT: Image Guided Radiotherapy

  Image Guided Radio Therapy (IGRT) - Three-dimensional conformal radiation therapy or radiation therapy under visual control. Radiation therapy in Israel is an advanced method of IGRT and actively developing field of radiotherapy and can treat tumors and localization (in the intestines, lungs and other organs), changing their position in the natural movements of the body and (the work of the bladder, intestines, breathing and etc.), or in the process of changing the weight of the patient during treatment. To determine in real time the exact coordinates of the tumor, its size and location, linear accelerators equipped with ultrasonic and X-ray devices, and other visualization systems.

  For example, the tumor of lungs moves to time of breath and before development of this method experts couldn't define tumor localization precisely. At application of beam therapy in Israel on the IGRT method the Israeli doctors can precisely establish an arrangement of a tumor and direct radiation to tumor area. Thus healthy fabrics are exposed to impact of radiation less. Specially developed technology establishes an arrangement on a breath and an exhalation and sends beams precisely to a tumor. One of the most widespread an example of such technology is the Trilogy system which defines a dosage of radiation and provides three-dimensional calculation of movements of a tumor on a breath and an exhalation.

  Before emergence of methods of intensive modular radiation therapy and three-dimensional conformal beam therapy the healthy fabrics located round a tumor that led to different side effects were exposed to a high dose of radiation also. Today, thanks to development of the modern medicine, healthy fabrics are exposed to the minimum dose of radiation at the expense of definition of exact localization of a tumor.
