Adaptive radiotherapy fosters personalized care
Radiotherapy uses intense beams of energy to kill cancer cells, so it's crucial to localize a tumor precisely. Discover the factors that are critical for effective treatment and how adaptive radiotherapy improves patient outcomes.
Adaptive radiotherapy is constantly monitored based on clinical images and daily treatment modifications to prevent excessive radiation exposure to residual tumors or healthy surrounding tissue. Three experts explain the factors that determine the success of this therapy.
