Intensity-Modulated Radiosurgery System

A high-definition multi-leaf collimator (MLC) that facilitates intensity-modulated radiation therapy (IMRT). Using the adjustable leaves of an MLC to shape the beam and by controlling exposure times, clinicians can deliver a different dose to different segments of the tumor, modulating the dose intensity across the entire treatment field. Consequently, the dose can be higher in the most aggressive areas of the tumor and lower in areas where the beam is near or passing through sensitive healthy tissues.
