Intensity Modulated Radiation therapy cures cancer by radiation therapy by providing the dose to the tumor without affecting the tissues that surround that tumor. It has proven to be a great technique for the people who are having cancer in or near their vital organs. This treatment is beneficial for those tumors which are difficult to reach and are in a remote area of the body. It also involves an advantage of that it does not affect the normal tissue and hence if re-radiation therapy of the affected tumor is required, it can be easily done. It can cure any kind of tumor regardless of size, structure and location and shape. In this process, numerous small radiations of several intensities are directed to pass through the affected area. The first step involves the immobilization of the patient, then simulation through the radiator.
The CT scan is performed on the affected area, at regular intervals. Then the data is collected and recorded. This ensures the correctness and accuracy of the treatment so that there is no scope of any mistake in the treatment.
The average cost of Intensity Modulated Radiation Therapy (IMRT) ranges from USD 7500 in India compared to USD 8500 in Germany. The price of the Intensity Modulated Radiation therapy in the United States of America starts from USD 12,834.
Hence the treatment is done by linear accelerators with supreme accuracy to treat the tumor, which is done in various countries, but the doctor and hospital shall be chosen wisely.
