3D CRT (Three-Dimensional Conformation Radiation Therapy) in Tampa, FL
3D CRT, or three-dimensional conformal radiation therapy, is one of the highly advanced radiation treatments offered at Moffitt Cancer Center in Tampa, Florida. In this treatment, three-dimensional images of a patient’s tumor (i.e., images produced by CT or MRI scans) are used to guide the delivery of high-energy beams. This allows a patient’s treatment team to carefully administer radiation therapy to the tumor while sparing the adjacent healthy tissues and organs from radiation exposure.
The enhanced precision of 3D CRT allows Moffitt’s radiation oncologists to treat many types of cancer that were once not treatable with radiation therapy because of the high risk of damage to surrounding structures. While 3D CRT can be used to treat nearly any type of cancer, it is commonly used in the management of:
- Head and neck cancer
- Lung cancer
- Spinal cord tumors
- Prostate cancer
- Breast cancer
3D CRT is just one of the advanced treatments offered at Moffitt Cancer Center in Tampa. We have technologically advanced capabilities for stereotactic ablative radiotherapy, volumetric modulated arc therapy and numerous other types of radiation-based treatment. But, more important than our machines are the highly experienced individuals who use them, ranging from our radiation oncologists, dosimetrists and physicists to our radiation therapists and nurses. With a multispecialty team of professionals who specialize in a specific aspect of planning, delivering and monitoring the results of radiation therapy, we’re able to consistently deliver treatment with a high level of accuracy and precision – whether that treatment is 3D CRT, conventional radiation therapy or anything in between.
