Pediatric Radiation Oncology Updates

RapidArc provides both IMRT and IGRT in a more rapid fashion, which requires children to be on the treatment table and holding still for a shorter period of time. We also can provide radiation with sedation when children require it. We use a safe, fast-acting, deep sedation calibrated for the individual child that leaves the child with no memory of the procedure.

The goal of radiation therapy is to destroy or shrink tumor cells without damaging surrounding healthy tissue, often together with surgery and/or chemotherapy depending on the tumor that we are treating.
