If you’re a Westchester resident with prostate cancer then IMRT should be your treatment choice. Bronx based radiation oncologist Dr. Alfred Rosenbaum is at the forefront of prostate cancer treatment through the use of cutting edge Intensity Modulated Radiation Therapy (IMRT).
Prostate cancer is a leading cause of cancer death in American men and the American Cancer Society estimates that 27,000 men in the United States die of prostate cancer each year. Dr Rosenbaum's goal is to lead the battle to reduce this statistic by early and effective treatment, including IMRT and outpatient Brachytherapy (seed implantation).
IMRT is made possible due to the use of sophisticated computers. Each treatment is specifically tailored to the individual patient, depending upon the extent and nature of the prostate cancer present. Using a CT and MRI, Dr. Rosenbaum programs the computer with the information regarding how much radiation to give the prostate and the surrounding tissues. The computer determines the best way to deliver the treatment by varying, or "modulating," the intensity of each radiation beam.
If you or someone you know suffers from prostate cancer then call Dr. Rosenbaum and see if IMRT can help in the treatment of prostate cancer.
