3D Conformal Radiation Therapy (3DCRT) is a planning and treatment technique used for treating nearly all sites of the body. This technique utilizes 3D planning to avoid delivering radiation to healthy surrounding tissue while conforming the dose to the tumor/tumor bed.

The treatment time for a 3DCRT treatment is 15-30 minutes and is used in conjunction with Image Guided Radiation Therapy (IGRT) techniques to ensure the accuracy of treatment delivery (see details for IGRT below).

The Radiation Oncologist will assess the suitability for 3CRT on a case by case basis.
