3D Planning

What it is :
Once the tumor is localized by the radiation oncologist and the tumor volume defined, a three dimensional treatment plan is generated to conform a radiation beam to the tumor. During the planning process the radiation beam is sculpted to maximize the dose to the tumor while sparing the surrounding critical organs. The goal of the treatment planning process is not only to deliver an adequate dose to the tumor volume but also to minimize the dose to the surrounding normal tissues to alleviate side effects.
