Innovative Adaptive Radiation Technology

At Brigham and Women’s Hospital, our revolutionary cancer treatment delivery system uses artificial intelligence (AI) based adaptive therapy to provide highly advanced, precise and personalized care for patients with cancer.

Our radiation system transforms the fight against cancer by personalizing and adapting each treatment to every change in a patient’s anatomy. As you go through treatment, your anatomy can change, tumors can shrink, and healthy tissues and organs can move and shift in relation to your tumor’s location. Our technology adapts to these changes during treatment, which means we’re effectively treating the tumor while being careful to minimize radiation to healthy, surrounding tissue.

It's important to us to provide the most state-of-the-art technology available while keeping your comfort and convenience in mind. When you receive radiation treatment at the Brigham, you can expect short treatment times (about 15-25 minutes per session) and comfortable, quiet equipment. An integrated camera and intercom system allows us to communicate easily with your during treatment, all with the goal of providing a positive experience in a reassuring and safe environment.

Adaptive radiation therapy is recommended for certain cancers but not for everyone. Your care team will discuss with you the radiation delivery system that is right for you.
