TomoTherapy Radiation Treatment

This system moves the treatment beam around the patient as the treatment couch moves, just like a CT (Computerized Tomography) scan. This technique minimizes damage to healthy tissue by pinpointing tumors with precise radiation beams and that means patients can sometimes receive fewer treatments.

Elekta Linear Accelerators

This equipment also uses CT to create an image of the area before treatment. This allows us to precisely target the tumor while sparing healthy tissue. Radiation oncologists and neurosurgeons can treat inoperable brain tumors with Stereotactic Radio Surgery using the Elekta system.

We also offer:

  • Stereotactic Body Radiation Therapy (SBRT)
  • Intensity Modulated Radiation Therapy (IMRT) treatment techniques
  • Brachytherapy radiation implants to treat many cancers without irradiating healthy tissues. The High Dose Rate Brachytherapy we now offer for Accelerated Partial Breast Irradiation requires fewer days than conventional external beam irradiation. We also offer permanent seed prostate brachytherapy.
  • The only program in the state for Pediatric Radiation Oncology
