Why Choose Us for IMRT?

Our doctors are experts in both critical steps of IMRT: planning treatment and delivering treatment. In fact, our highly respected radiation oncologists regularly train doctors from other hospitals on how to use this advanced technology to help patients.

That’s because the University of Chicago Department of Radiation and Cellular Oncology was the first center in Chicago to provide IMRT to its patients. Today, our doctors are now using IMRT as standard treatment for patients with prostate, anal, cervical, uterine, brain, and pancreatic cancer. Combining this advanced technique with years of experience, radiation oncologists can maintain excellent cancer control rates yet limit the long-term toxic effects of radiation on healthy organs.
