Our Radiation Oncology Department features state-of-the-art technology with treatment programs including:
Patients are being treated with a new Linear Accelerator (pictured above) as of January 2018. This new equipment offers patients radiation therapy with greater precision and efficiency. The Linear Accelerator is capable of delivering stereotactic radiation for early stage lung cancer – a highly effective curative option for patients who are poor candidates for surgical management.
Daily CT image guidance is available, allowing for increased precision of highly targeted radiation. VMAT arc therapy is offered as well, enabling significantly faster delivery of complex plans. The new Linear Accelerator is also equipped with a bariatric treatment table capable of treating patients up to 500 pounds. These features will allow more patients to stay in our community for radiation treatment.
