Image-Guided Radiation Therapy (IGRT)

  • What is Image-Guided Radiation Therapy (IGRT)?

    Image-guided radiation therapy (IGRT) is a way of using x-rays and images (scans) of the body to guide individual treatment. The x-rays and scans show the size, shape and position of the cancer. The radiation therapy is planned so as to give a high dose of radiation directly to the cancer. The surrounding healthy tissue is given as low a dose as possible to reduce the risk of injury to these tissues.

  • By using IGRT, doctors can focus the radiation accordingly. As treatment is personalised, the planning can take a bit longer than other treatments and each therapy session may also last longer than others.

    As IGRT is able to track changes to your cancer throughout the treatment and the treatment plan can be changed at any stage. This can result in:

    • More effective treatment
    • More accurate radiation delivery
    • Fewer side effects
  • Our skilled team of specialists and staff operate at Mount Elizabeth Orchard and Mount Elizabeth Novena – both award-winning hospitals with modern technology and facilities.

    Take your first step towards better health today, and experience the quality and customised healthcare that has made us one of the leading medical institutions in Asia-Pacific.
