Intensity Modulated Radiation Therapy (IMRT)
Stoddard had the first Intensity Modulated Radiation Therapy (IMRT) program to treat both prostate and head/neck patients in the state of Iowa. The newest treatment planning systems and the same optical localization we use for SRS combines to provide the highest level of accuracy and beam conformity for prostate, head and neck and other sites. What does this mean to the patient? It allows the linear accelerator to "paint" radiation doses around the tumor, lymph nodes and tissue at risk as well as shield critical structures.
Our state-of-the-art Trilogy™ Linear Accelerator moves around the patient while simultaneously changing the shape and intensity of the radiation field. Precise accuracy and efficiency are delivered as never before in the field of radiation oncology.
