Radiation Oncology

Linear AcceleratorRadiation Oncologists treat cancer by delivering high-energy radiation precisely to shrink tumors or kill cancer cells. Our radiation oncologists are skilled in the most current techniques/technologies to deliver the appropriate doses of radiation to a specifically pinpointed area, while minimizing the exposure to surrounding, healthy cells.

Our sophisticated, precision equipment includes:

  • Three state-of- the-art linear accelerators linked to a record and verify computerized system that ensures the accurate and safe delivery of radiation treatments.
  • New stereotactic technology provides precise, high-dose treatments (in as few as one to five sessions) in a shorter period of time for select patients with lung, brain, spine and prostate cancers.
  • CT simulation technology and treatment planning to precisely map out the tumor target and generate the most sophisticated plan to treat the tumor and limit the dose to surrounding structures.

ACR-ASTRO SealThe 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.
