3D Conformal Radiation Therapy

  • What is 3D Conformal Radiation Therapy?

    Three-dimensional (3D) conformal radiation therapy uses 3D images on a computer to shape beams of radiation around the shape and size of the tumour. The radiation beams are highly focused (conformed) on the tumour and this accuracy allows high doses of radiation to be given, while reducing the amount of radiation damage to the surrounding healthy tissue.

    This increases the chances of recovery as higher levels of radiation are more effective for shrinking and destroying tumours.

  • 3D conformal radiation therapy is most useful for tumours that are close to important organs and structures in the body as it avoids radiation damage to healthy body tissues and organs. This therapy can be used to treat several types of cancer:

    • Bladder cancer
    • Brain tumours
    • Head and neck cancers
    • Liver cancer
    • Lung cancer
    • Oesophageal cancer (cancer of the food pipe)
    • Pancreatic cancer
    • Prostate cancer
