Radiation Oncologists specialize in the treatment and management of cancer patients undergoing radiation therapy. The physician will develop treatment plans, monitor the patient’s progress, adjust the treatment dosage when appropriate, and treat side effects caused by the radiation therapy.
IGRT is image-guided radiation therapy, a technique which enables the Radiation Oncologist to locate the tumor before each dose of radiation therapy is delivered.
IMRT is an image-guided radiation therapy which allows the Radiation Oncologist to pinpoint the radiation on the tumor. This technique spares more normal tissue exposed to radiation during treatment.
MammoSite is designed for the treatment of early-stage breast cancer patients who meet certain criteria. This specialized treatment consists of 10 treatments within 5 days. MammoSite will deliver a high dose of radiation to the area most at risk for recurrence.
In addition, it limits the radiation dose to the surrounding normal breast and adjacent tissues, potentially minimizing side effects.
Prostate Brachytherapy is a treatment for early-stage prostate cancer. This procedure is an ultrasound-guided implantation of radioiodine seeds into the prostate. It is a one-time procedure and is performed on an outpatient basis and takes approximately 2 hours.
