Abstract

The introduction of a mobile linear accelerator in the OR has made intraoperative radiation therapy (IORT) more plausible. An IORT treatment can deliver a single high dose of radiation to a tumor or tumor bed after surgical resection or surgical exposure of high risk areas. This article details a case study in which IORT was used on a patient with sigmoid carcinoma and the procedure outcomes.
