Monaco now backs up the full spectrum of radiotherapy techniques, including VMAT, IMRT and 3D conformal radiation therapy
. The system is especially well equipped for sophisticated stereotactic therapies, such as SRS and SRT, with added planning support for specialized beam shaping solutions, including circular cones.
The application of advanced radiation techniques, such as 3D conformal radiation therapy
and intensity-modulated radiation therapy, is expected to improve the therapeutic index of radiation therapy for HNC by limiting the dose to critical organs and possibly increasing locoregional tumor control.
