RapidArc is a sophisticated technology that allows our department to rapidly deliver intensity-modulated radiation therapy (IMRT), precisely planned radiation therapy that targets the tumor but can spare nearby healthy tissues. RapidArc, which is available on the Novalis Tx and Trilogy (our other stereotactic radiosurgery-capable linear accelerator), can result in treatment times that are between two and eight times faster than conventional radiation delivery techniques. Our facility is one of the first in Louisiana and the Gulf Coast to use this technology.
