INTENSITY MODULATED RADIATION THERAPY: OVERVIEW OF JOURNEY FROM CONVENTIONAL TO DASSIM-RTAbstract
Intensity modulated radiation therapy (IMRT) is a technique to deliver a highly conformal radiation dose distribution, that too with wide spectrum ranging from conventional IMRT, through Volumetric Modulated Arc Therapy (VMAT) to most advanced form called Dense Angularly Sampled and Sparse Intensity Modulated Radiation Therapy (DASSIM-RT). The article intends to overview the current status of the technology.
