Reuters Health - 30/10/2020 - For women undergoing adjuvant radiation after hysterectomy for cervical cancer, image-guided intensity-modulated radiation therapy (IG-IMRT) has similar oncologic benefit as standard radiation therapy with less gastrointestinal (GI) toxicity, new research indicates. "This is the first study in gynecological cancer to show the impact of advanced technology in reducing long-term morbidity and improving the survivorship experience of patients. Given these results, women undergoing postoperative radiation should receive image-guided IMRT," lead author Dr. Supriya Chopra, professor of radiation oncology at the Tata Memorial Centre in Mumbai, India, said in news release.
