Electron Beam Radiation Therapy
Company : Intraop Medical Corp
UMDC Code : 452960
Intraoperative Electron Beam Radiation Therapy (IOERT) is the most effective type of IORT, and treating with electron-beams rather than x-rays is what distinguishes IOERT from IORT. Some IORT treatments use low-voltage x-ray beams, but x-rays penetrate beyond the tumor bed to the normal tissues beneath, have poor depth distribution, and take a relatively long time to administer. Treating with electron beams improves dose distributions, limits penetration beyond the tumor bed, and delivers the required dose much more rapidly than x-ray beams.
