Our Radiation Oncology Department is at the forefront of cancer treatment, offering state-of-the-art radiation therapy services, including brachytherapy, powered by the cutting-edge TrueBeam technology. We are dedicated to providing you with the most advanced and precise radiation treatments available, personalized care plans, and unwavering support throughout your cancer journey.
Radiation Oncology is a specialized medical field that focuses on using radiation therapy to treat cancer. Brachytherapy is a specific form of radiation therapy where a radioactive source is placed directly into or very close to the tumor. Our department is proud to have a team of highly skilled radiation oncologists who are experts in delivering targeted cancer treatments.
- External Beam Radiation Therapy (EBRT): We offer external beam radiation therapy using TrueBeam, a state-of-the-art linear accelerator. TrueBeam technology delivers highly precise and powerful radiation beams to target cancer cells while sparing healthy tissue.
- Brachytherapy: Our department specializes in brachytherapy, a technique that allows for the precise delivery of radiation by placing radioactive sources directly inside the body or near the tumor. We provide brachytherapy for various cancer types, including prostate, cervical, and breast cancer.
- Intensity-Modulated Radiation Therapy (IMRT): We offer IMRT, a sophisticated form of external beam radiation therapy that customizes radiation doses to match the shape of the tumor, minimizing damage to surrounding healthy tissue.
- Image-Guided Radiation Therapy (IGRT): TrueBeam technology incorporates IGRT, which uses real-time imaging to ensure the accurate delivery of radiation, even as the tumor position may change during treatment.
At our Radiation Oncology Department, your well-being is our top priority:
- We provide detailed information about your treatment plan, including what to expect, potential side effects, and how to manage them.
- We collaborate closely with you to address your concerns and preferences, creating a supportive and compassionate treatment environment.
- We offer a range of support services to help you manage the emotional and physical challenges of cancer treatment.
