Radiation treatments for cancer
Radiation is a crucial part of many cancer treatment regimens. High-energy x-rays or proton beams work to destroy malignant cells by shrinking or even totally eliminating cancerous tumors. Our radiation oncologists use a broad array of the most current and effective radiation treatments and technologies, including the latest version of the Varian Truebeam Trilogy technology, which has advanced imaging, 6 degree couch rotation, and the latest Respiratory Gating software. Our range of advanced treatments includes:
- External beam radiation therapy (EBRT) with image-guided radiotherapy (IGRT)
- Stereotactic radiosurgery (SRS) and stereotactic body radiation therapy (SRT)
- Prone Breast Treatment
- EBRT using Respiratory Gating
