Tx Technology

Our department just completed a major strategic acquisition and redistribution program aimed at completely revamping the technological platform.  This allows our radiation oncologists to choose from the widest range of technologies and techniques available in the country to treat cancer patients. And we go out of our way to push this technology to the highest standard of precision and safety. Our department is accredited by ACR/ASTRO and we follow all AAPM recommendations.

In fact, our physics faculty have contributed to many of the AAPM Task Group reports setting the norms of the highest standards in radiation oncology.

Technology used at the Radiation Oncology Department

We cover a range of clinical services including 3DCRT, IMRT, IGRT, VMAT, SRS, SBRT, Motion-management, HDR and LDR Brachytherapy, IORT, TBI, Hyperthermia, pediatrics, and proton therapy (ocular melanoma). Treatment planning can count on a suite of planning systems such as Pinnacle / Eclipse / Oncentra / Multiplan / Tomoplan, etc., as well as advanced image registration tools required to perform dose mapping retreatment.
