Welcome to Radiation Therapy Center
Internal & External Radiation Therapy • Radiation Oncology • Radiation Treatment
At Radiation Therapy Center, We Provide:
3-D conformal treatment interfaces with the Radiation Center's computer tomography (CT) scanner, providing the treatment team with valuable information about a tumor's size and extent. The Radiation Therapy Center's 3-Dimensional conformal radiotherapy (3D-CRT) technology offers additional advanced treatment options beyond conventional 2-D radiation therapy. This precise radiotherapy approach permits the focusing of significantly higher radiation doses onto the tumor, while excluding the unaffected surrounding normal tissue.

Intensity Modulated Radiation Therapy (IMRT) is the most sophisticated form of computer-delivered radiation therapy. It uses a powerful computer model to plan therapy and multileaf collimator to deliver highly focused radiation doses with minimal damage to surrounding tissues.

It is being used to treat cancer of the prostate, head and neck, brain, spine, thyroid, and mediastinum.

We Use State-of-the-Art
Equipment, Which Includes:

  • Dual Energy Linear Accelerator Varian IX Trilogy

  • Philips Treatment Planning System

  • Philips Large Bore CT Scanner

  • Mosaiq for Record and Verify/EMR

  • Topex

Image Guided Radiation Therapy (IGRT) Using BrianLAB Extrac, Cone Beam CT, and KV Images
A highly advanced computerized process for improving the accuracy of radiation delivered to kill tumors in cancer patients.

Traditional radiation therapy is compromised by inability to 3-dimensionally confirm that the tumor is in perfect position, as well as the fact that patients move involuntarily (breathe) during treatment, making the tumor a "moving target."

It is very difficult to prevent radiation from damaging nearby healthy tissue.

IGRT uses high resolution and advanced imaging technologies to account for position and motion, thereby sparing healthy tissues.

Superficial X-ray Therapy is specifically for skin cancer.
