Volumetric Modulated Arc Therapy (VMAT)

Volumetric Modulated Arc Therapy (VMAT)

Volumetric Modulated Arc Therapy (VMAT) is an advanced form of intensity-modulated radiation therapy (IMRT) that uses state of the art computer algorithms to calculate and deliver radiation directly to cancer cells.  

VMAT treatments involve the linear accelerator rotating around the patient while the radiation beam is continuously modified allowing for higher doses of radiation to be delivered to the tumor while reducing the radiation dose to normal tissues. This increases your chance for a cure and lessens the likelihood of side effects.
