Thanks to technologically advanced techniques MD are able to provide a detailed analysis of the area to be treated with millimeter precision in order to direct the beams of radiation only in the areas of the tumor tissue and with the maximum intensity required by the clinical case.
Technologies such as IGRT , IMRT and VMAT allow doctors to never lose the alignment of the machine with the tumor and to modulate the intensity depending on the area to be irradiated .
IGRT ( Image Guided Radiation Therapy ) allows to " align " the pointing system on the tumor within the body during the treatment phase , and then to center it with accuracy .
IMRT ( Intensity Modulation Radiotherapy ) allows to define a 3D model of the tumor in the view of the professionals that monitor the radiation treatment and then allow to attack the tumor from multiple angles in order to make more effective the treatment plan.
VMAT ( Volumetric Modulated Arc Therapy) allows to employ the desired dose of radiation only in the area that requires and especially to modulate the intensity as the radiation beam moves in the few centimeters, millimeters of the area defined " to treat " . This technique is able to reduce the time required for exposure to radiation from 2 to 6 times .
Ecomedica is equipped with modern technologies for the treatment of tumor areas in order to offer the patient a treatment system that:
- Affects only the affected areas as much as possible and save the healthy ones ;
- Let radiate with a dose modulated depending on the area and the tolerance of the surrounding healthy tissue ;
- Can reduce the total number of sessions and the duration of each session , in order to have the ability to treat more patients in a single year;
The radiotherapy service is available in both " convention" that in " direct " mode, for further informations contact us at +39057199281 strong>.
