Intensity modulated radiation therapy (IMRT) offers a method of delivering radiation dose conforming to the shape of targets while minimizing the dose to the surrounding tissue and nearby critical organs. One popular device is the NOMOS MIMiC Collimator coupled to the CORVUS treatment planning system. The MIMiC collimator, mounted on a linac head, opens and closes one or more of its 40 small leaves as determined by the planner while the linac delivers radiation and the gantry rotates.
