s a great job of sparing his healthy lung tissue, so we can deliver the kind of higher dose that has a chance of eradicating the tumor, and we can do it in daily treatments that take less than two minutes to deliver. Conventional IMRT treatments would have taken 10-15 minutes per day."

Dr. Shah points out that faster treatments have the potential to improve accuracy further, because there is less chance of the patient moving during a shorter treatment. "With RapidArc, we are comfortable that our patients are receiving treatments that are at least equivalent and in some cases superior to conventional IMRT treatments, in terms of normal tissue sparing, even though the process is fast for our patients."

Clinical studies on radiotherapy have correlated the ability to spare more healthy tissue with reduced complications and better outcomes. Other studies suggest that faster treatments may lead to a higher cancer cell kill rate. The American Cancer Society estimates that, in 2008 there will be 1.4 million new cases of cancer in the United States, with over 97,000 of those occurring in New York State.
