At CarePoint Health, the Department of Radiation Oncology offers the latest in radiation techniques and equipment to provide the best possible cancer care to every patient. Beating cancer is CarePoint Health’s mission.
Elekta Synergy® is a state-of-the-art linear accelerator that has real-time imaging capabilities that ensure high precision with each radiation treatment. This technique, called Image Guided Radiation Therapy (IGRT), ensures a high degree of accuracy in delivering the radiation treatment. Our department also has the capability to treat cancers using standard Intensity Modulated Radiation Therapy (IMRT) or Volumetric Modulated Arc Therapy (VMAT) which have revolutionized radiation treatments by shaping the radiation and pinpointing the tumor while reducing the dose to normal tissues.
Discovery PET/CT is a device that uses positron emission tomography and computed tomography to create rapid and detailed images of each patient’s tissues using low doses of radiation. The team uses this device both to determine the extent of the cancer and to plan the radiation treatment with maximum precision.
