Trilogy with Rapid Arc vs. Other Radiation Therapies Trilogy with RapidArc is a way of delivering very precise and rapid radiation therapy to the areas of the body that we want. The machine is capable of doing a variety of radiation treatments from Intensity-Modulated Radiation Therapy or IMRT to Stereotactic Radiosurgery, which means a single large fraction of radiation to a small target which could either be in the brain or anywhere around the body and Stereotactic Radiation, Intensity Modulated Radiation, the Trilogy with RapidArc takes all of these technologies and puts it together in one machine that can do the job extremely, extremely well. Some of the other products out there like Cyberknife, like Gamma Knife, are designed often just for one part of the body like the Gamma Knife is just used in the brain and Cyberknife is another way of delivering a high amount of radiation to a very small target, and it too has far more limitations than Trilogy with RapidArc.
