Image-guided radiation therapy and stereotactic applications
Stanford is one of the first facilities in the world to use the Trilogy™ system, a new device for cancer radiation treatments specifically for image-guided radiation therapy (IGRT) and image-guided radio surgery (IGRS) to treat tumors without damaging surrounding healthy tissues.
Types of treatment performed with Trilogy
The versatile Trilogy system can be used to deliver the following for cancer and neurosurgical treatments:
3D conformal radiotherapy
Fractionated stereotactic radiation therapy
Advantages of Trilogy
Trilogy enables doctors to choose and use the most appropriate treatment modality for treating cancer in the body or the head and neck, and to deliver the full spectrum of treatments, using a single machine in a single room. Trilogy allows for the delivery of higher doses of radiation to smaller areas over a shorter period of time. It would be helpful to add more about how the higher doses over a shorter period is beneficial to patients.
