Our comprehensive oncology services include:
The Center offers a full range of leading-edge radiation therapies, including stereotactic radio surgery (SRS), stereotactic body radiation therapy (SBRT), image-guided radiation therapy (IGRT) and intensity-modulated radiation therapy (IMRT). In addition to 4-D, the Center offers the newest treatment planning technology, Align RT, a revolutionary 3-D imaging solution for patient set-up and tracking during radiation therapy.
As part of our prostate program we offer high-dose radiation (HDR) brachytherapy as well as external beam radiotherapy using the SpaceOAR™ hydrogel system to treat prostate cancer. HDR brachytherapy is a powerful form of radiation therapy that can cut the usual treatment time of five weekly treatments for eight weeks down to just two treatments. The hydrogel system can decrease the probability of rectal injury during radiation. The Center also houses the most advanced dual-energy linear accelerator in the industry, the TrueBeamTM STx, which targets the tumor with higher doses of radiation while preserving healthy surrounding tissue.
