CarePoint Health Radiation Oncology Associates offers the latest in radiation techniques and equipment to provide you with the best possible cancer care. Some of the technology that may be used in your care include:
Elekta Synergy® Linear Accelerator—this machine allows the physician to use real-time image guidance during the treatment process to ensure a high precision of accuracy with each radiation treatment.
GE Discovery PET/CT 600®—this machine creates 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 radiation treatments with maximum precision.
Modulated Radiation Therapy (IMRT) or Volumetric Modulated Arc Therapy (VMAT)— uses linear accelerators to safely and painlessly deliver precise radiation doses to a tumor while minimizing the dose to surrounding normal tissue.
Yttrium–90 Treatment—this minimally invasive procedure is used in the treatment of liver cancer.
Stereotactic Radiation Therapy (SRT) and Stereotactic Body Radiation Therapy (SBRT)—these advanced procedures administer very high doses of radiation to a small focused area to precisely target tumors.
