This 3D medical animation describes the process of intensity modulated radiation therapy, including the use of CT scans and the linac machine. Intensity modeled radiation therapy is a procedure used to treat certain forms of cancer, to kill cancer or control cancer growth. Cells in the body grow and divide as part of the normal cell cell cycles, when cells become cancerous however they can continue to grow uncontrollably. Radiation can be used to kill cancer.

This 3D medical animation about chemotherapy depicts normal cell division, apoptosis, tumor cell formation, tumor development, and angiogenesis of a tumor. It describes the cause of tumor cell formation at the genetic level with DNA, and metastasis through blood and lymph vessels. This animation covers the various effects of chemotherapy: cancer cell death, tumor death, destruction of normal cells and tissue. It also covers the side effects associated with chemotherapy treatments. Also described are related treatments, such as, radiation, pills, capsules, liquids, intravenous injections, surgical procedures, catheterization, CSF injection, wafter placement, and schedule of treatments.
