Surface guided radiation therapy SGRT

 

What is surface guided radiation therapy (SGRT)?

 
SGRT uses sophisticated 3D camera technology to accurately target and kill cancer cells.

  • During your treatment, cameras monitor your exact position to make sure the radiation is precisely targeted
  • The treatment area receives the maximum dose of radiation therapy. The surrounding healthy tissue receives a much lower dose. This reduces the risk of side-effects
  • SGRT is often used to enable DIBH treatment for left-sided breast cancer with the benefit of minimising dose to the heart

Unlike some other forms of radiation therapy, SGRT means you don’t need to have any permanent markings (tattoos) made on your body.
