Advanced cancer treatment technology
The LewisGale Regional Cancer Center at Pulaski offers our patients an advancement in radiation therapy with an advanced linear accelerator that uses highly precise dose rates, delivered with speed and accuracy, for anywhere in the body where a patient’s oncologist recommends radiation treatment. Previously, if there were significant changes in a patient’s anatomy during the course of treatment or if a tumor was near a critical body structure, those challenges made it difficult for clinicians to target and deliver radiation treatment.
This technological advancement addresses these technical challenges—particularly for cancers of the head and neck, breast, lung and prostate—by continuously monitoring tumor movement and helping radiation oncologists deliver radiation only when the tumor is in the right place. The combination of 2D, 3D and 4D imaging used during treatments allow each patient’s radiation oncologist to view more detailed images and determine more personalized treatment plans.
