How does it work?

IMRT utilizes beams shaped by multileaf collimators (MLCs) that move in and out of the beam’s path during treatment, varying the radiation beam intensity across the targeted field.

A combination of such beams of varying intensity allows a highly sculpted three dimensional distribution of radiation, maximizing dose to the tumour while reducing or even avoiding healthy tissues. Advanced computer planning helps to find the best combination of beams to achieve the desired results.
