I cannot remember when I first heard or read the specific mnemonic ‘IMRT’ but it was probably around 1996. I think (but do not know for sure) that the term has stuck by usage rather than by edict. Many of us were writing the words in full long before that. Prior to this many competing terms vied for the accepted title. Some of these were: intensity-modulated beams (IMBs), beam intensity modulation (BIM), intensity-modulated radiotherapy (IMRT), fluence modulation, beam modulation, dynamic modulation, dynamic therapy, dynamic collimation, moving field (or beam) therapy, tracking therapy.
NOMOS MIMiC DELIVERY PEACOCK is the name of the IMRT system marketed by the NOMOS Corporation whose founding scientist and former Managing Director was Dr Mark Carol. The original name of the Company was MEDCO, founded by Mark Carol and John Friede (the current Managing Director). In 1993, the name changed to NOMOS, rooted in the Greek for ‘to learn, understand and solve’. The name PEACOCK incorporates both the planning system (formerly known as PEACOCKPLAN, now known as CORVUS) together with the treatment delivery system, the MIMiC.
Those centres which have then implemented IMRT have found fewer toxicities despite dose escalation. IMRT requires a large number of beams with fine-scale intensity modulation and fine-scale spatial sampling. This may be true but it may not. This depends on the problem. ) made the case for complex IMRT, partly to demonstrate expected benefits and partly because the theory of IMRT planning ran ahead of the practical development of delivery. Times have changed. ’ and then seeing what ‘limited’ or ‘partial’ or ‘simplified’ IMRT can achieve.
