Dynamic Couch Rotation Advancing In Radiation Technology

A new advancement in radiotherapy technology has provided patients with A new advancement in radiotherapytechnology has provided patients with brain cancer a new alternative for treatment that could increase the accuracy and the speed of treatment. This style of treatment will rotate the patient in sync with the radiation beam with a technique called Dynamic Couch Rotation. Current treatment has been done using Volumetric Modulated Arc Therapy (VMAT).  This new technique has proven to be just as accurate but can also improve delivery times which in turn will reduce exposure to healthy/sensitive brain tissues nearby and decrease side effects overall.
