We have the most advanced linear accelerator, which directs highly targeted radiation beams to fight cancer growth. Our oncologists will determine the best treatment plan for your needs, which may include one or more of the following radiation treatments:
3D conformal radiation: Physicians can view a tumor in three dimensions and sculpt radiation beams to its shape, limiting radiation’s effects on healthy tissue.
Intensity-modulated radiation therapy (IMRT): In this procedure, physicians visualize tumors in three dimensions and treat them with “beamlets” of light. IMRT allows them to target tumors in difficult positions, such as those near the spinal cord.
Stereotactic body radiation therapy (SBRT): Physicians deliver radiation from several angles that converge at one small point, like a magnifying glass, to precisely target tumors.
