Intraoperative Radiotherapy

Intraoperative Radiotherapy (IORT) involves treatment with radiation therapy during surgery. The benefit of this method is that less tissue is exposed to radiation. The target area can be directly viewed by your team of oncologists and surgeons, and a more effective dose of radiation may be delivered directly to the tumor. Intraoperative irradiation can be used with many types of tumors, including breast cancer, colorectal cancers, and sarcomas, in order to improve the outcome of cancer treatment.

ROA physicians use the Zeiss Intrabeam system to deliver intraoperative radiation treatments. Learn more about the Zeiss Intrabeam System
