INTRA OPERATIVE RADIATION THERAPY
Intra Operative Radiation Therapy is an isotope-free alternative form or radiation therapy. IORT is delivered in one single dose during the patients surgery as opposed to traditional daily radiation therapy which can be painful, dangerous, and typically lasts 5-8 weeks. In fact, a typical IORT case can be completed in as little as 8 minutes. IORT allows doctors to precisely administer miniaturized x-ray radiation directly to the cancerous areas without putting healthy tissue and organs at risk.
For qualifying patients, IORT offers a unique approach which not only increases patient willingness to choose the path of radiation, but also eliminates unnecessary radiation to nearby healthy tissue. The Pink Lotus Breast Center is excited to offer this alternative approach as part of our comprehensive catalog of diagnostic offerings.
