Our Cancer Care Technologies

TrueBeam®

TrueBeam® Radiotherapy is a type of linear accelerator used to deliver precise external beam radiation. This technology can treat cancer anywhere in the body using image-guided radiation therapy (IGRT) and radiosurgery.

Brachytherapy

Brachytherapy, also known as internal radiation therapy, is a form of radiation therapy where a temporary or permanent radioactive implant is placed inside the patient. This makes it possible to place a higher dose of radiation near the tumor, while reducing radiation exposure to other parts of the body. The radiation is delivered either by needles inserted into the tissue, or by a special applicator placed into a body cavity near the tumor. Special applicators could include tubes, capsules, or balloon-like material. Depending on the type of cancer and treatment, the implants can be left in place anywhere from a few minutes to a few months.

Image-Guided Radiation Therapy (IGRT)

Image-Guided Radiation Therapy (IGRT) combines three-dimensional images, such as CT scans, with the precise technology of either 3-D or intensity-modulated radiation therapy (IMRT) to pinpoint and treat cancerous tumors. The images allow the cancer specialists to precisely localize the tumor each time radiation therapy is administered. This improves both accuracy of delivery and safety by reducing radiation exposure to other areas of the body including nearby tissue and organs. IGRT is used to treat tumors in areas of the body that are prone to movement, such as the lungs, liver, and prostate gland, as well as tumors located close to critical organs and tissues.
