St. Joseph’s in Dickinson Offers IMRT for Cancer

The Cancer Center at St. Joseph’s Hospital and Health Center, Dickinson, N.D., now offers Intensity Modulated Radiation Therapy (IMRT). IMRT has the ability to precisely sculpt a tumor with higher doses of radiation while greatly reducing radiation to surrounding healthy tissue. IMRP has been shown to be especially effective in the treatment of prostate cancer and cancers of the head and neck.
