Single-dose radiation therapy during operations
Intraoperative Radiation Therapy (IORT) method allows delivering a single dose of radiation during the surgical operation for breast cancer. This eliminates the need for post-operative radiation therapy. If required by physicians, additional doses of radiotherapy can be implemented.
Following surgical extraction of the breast tumor, a high dose of radiation is delivered to the precise area that needs treatment, and the surrounding healthy tissues are protected. Elimination of the need to come to the hospital for treatment every day, offers patients greater psychological comfort.
