IMRT (Intensity-Modulated Radiation Therapy) and IGRT (Image-guided radiation therapy) are used in the treatment of cancer. IMRT IGRT both have the same thing in common, they are both equipped with linear accelerators in order to deliver radiation.

IMRT IGRT treatment aids need to be in top working condition in order to deliver quality treatment to cancer patients. Acceletronics is definitely every hospital and health care facility’s partner for service parts and equipment. Acceletronics is known for offering top notch, competitively priced parts and equipment.

Acceletronics offers superb quality low cost:

” Radiation oncology equipment service & installation

” Refurbished IMRT IGRT equipped linear accelerator devices

” Refurbished CT simulators

” CT service

” and different types of treatment aids & Q.A. devices which include the Theraview EPID and KV Imager for IGRT.

IMRT is a highly developed mode of high precision radiotherapy that is known to employ computer controlled linear accelerator device in order to deliver uniform radiation doses to malignant tumors or specific areas that are within the tumor. IGRT is simply the use of frequent imaging all through the course of radiation therapy in order to enhance the accuracy of delivering of treatment.

In IGRT, devices that deliver radiation come equipped with imaging technology – this way, the physician will be able to image the tumor immediately prior to, or even during the time the radiation therapy is being administered, while the patient is on the treatment table. With the use of specialized computer software, the images will then be compared to the images that were taken during simulation. All necessary adjustments will then be made to the patient’s position and or to the radiation beams to accurately target the radiation at the tumor and not at the healthy surrounding tissue.

IMRT IGRT are used in order to treat the tumors that are in areas of the human body that are prone to constant movement like the prostate gland, lungs (which are affected by inhaling and exhaling) and tumors that are located close to vital tissues and organs. The following may be used with IMRT and IGRT:

” Computed tomography (CT)

” Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)

” Positron Emission Tomography (PET)

” Ultrasound (US)

” X-ray imaging

In order to keep the IMRT IGRT devices in top working condition, with Acceletronics, you can easily get access to highly experienced factory trained service reps. Acceletronics also provides a 24/7 service support that can be accessed in different locations all across the United States for many other types of radiation oncology equipment.
