3D Conformal Radiation Therapy

3D Conformal Radiation Therapy

3D Conformal Radiation Therapy (3DCRT) is a sophisticated type of external beam radiation therapy. Computers calculate a three-dimensional virtual model of your tumor or tumor cavity. The information from that virtual model is then used to plan your radiation treatments. During 3D Conformal Radiation Therapy, multiple beams of radiation will conform to your tumor’s size and shape, limiting exposure to nearby tissue and organs. 3D Conformal Radiation Therapy is designed to give a high dose of radiation to a very targeted area while limiting side effects to healthy tissues.
