As radiation oncology experts, we use innovative technology to target cancer cells and deliver radiation therapy while safeguarding healthy areas. We are dedicated to providing the best radiation treatments.
The American College of Radiology (ACR) and The American Society for Radiation Oncology (ASTRO) awarded us the ACR-ASTRO seal of accreditation for the highest level of quality and patient safety for radiation therapy.
Receiving Radiation Treatment
High-powered radiation beams stop cancer growth or relieve disease symptoms. Radiation therapy may be given by itself, before or after surgery or chemotherapy, or in combination with other therapies.
Radiation therapy is delivered by a high-energy linear accelerator, a tall, long machine. The accelerator moves around a treatment table and is positioned to aim radiation directly at the cancer.
Latest Radiation Therapies
For many cancers, we use intensity-modulated radiation therapy (IMRT) and image-guided radiation therapy (IGRT). IMRT and IGRT image the target site before each radiation session and shape the beam for precise delivery.
Stereotactic radiosurgery (SRS) for brain cancer and stereotactic body radiosurgery (SBRS) for other cancers use 3D imaging and focused beams on a targeted location. Accelerated partial breast radiation gives shorter, faster treatment for breast cancer.
To treat prostate cancer, our team is highly experienced with the Calypso® 4D Localization System, GPS for the Body®. Because the prostate gland moves continuously, Calypso® precisely aligns the organ with the radiation beam. This enables higher radiation doses to be sent to smaller areas, causing fewer side effects.
We also deliver radiation therapy internally through brachytherapy, a method used to treat some gynecologic cancers and prostate cancer.
Radiation Therapy Expertise
Our radiation oncologists, radiation physicists and radiation therapists – all board-certified – are highly skilled with the newest treatments and technologies. Patient safety and care are ensured through our board-certified dosimetrists (professionals who generate dose calculations), highly trained radiation therapy nurses and the entire team.
