Our comprehensive array of radiation therapy treatment technology includes:

  • Image-Guided Radiation Therapy (IGRT): the most advanced form of radiation therapy available, IGRT enables doctors to precisely locate and visualize the tumor before each dose is administered. Our state-of-the-art Trilogy™ delivery system enables doctors to choose the most appropriate treatment for treating cancer in the body, head or neck and deliver treatments all on one machine in a single room.
  • Stereotactic Radiosurgery and Radiotherapy: for high-dose application of radiation in one to five treatments, instead of the many smaller doses given in standard radiation treatment.
  • External Beam Radiation Therapy: delivers high doses of radiation to specifically target the affected cancer site and minimize the dose to surrounding normal tissue.
  • Intensity Modulated Radiation Therapy (IMRT): with fewer side effects than standard radiation therapy, IMRT is a highly accurate radiation instrument that spares normal tissue, allows for superior dose distributions, and is able to treat tumors near critical structures.
  • Three-dimensional Simulation and Treatment Planning: utilizes three-dimensional imaging information to visualize the target and critical structures so that an optimal treatment plan can be designed.
  • Electronic Compensation: customized to the individual patient and provides a more evenly distributed radiation dose by compensating for variations in patient anatomy.
  • Multi-modality Image Fusion: electronically incorporating anatomical data from different imaging methods such as CT, MRI or PET, it provides more clinical information for treatment planning than any method alone.
  • Radioactive Seed Implants: radioactive seeds about the size of a grain of rice are placed inside the prostate to kill cancer cells.
