Adaptive Radiation Therapy
washington dc adaptive radiation therapy services
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 3D conformal radiation method of conventional practice. With ART, all patients receive higher-quality treatment. 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.
