IORT is a type of brachytherapy for breast, skin, neuro, abdomen, gynecology, proctology cancer. After removing the tumor with surgery, doctor uses a small probe to treat the area with radiation. IORT takes less time and is more convenient than external beam radiation. External radiation can take five days a week for six weeks. With IORT, patient might have just one treatment after doctor removes the tumor. IORT therapy causes fewer side effects than external beam radiation. Doctor can send high-energy beams directly to the tumor area without going through healthy tissue.
