Radiation Oncology Services
- Evaluation and management of cancer patients with radiation therapy
- CT-based treatment planning: On-site CT interfaces with the treatment planning system, allowing the radiation oncologist to customize a treatment plan for each patient. With the use of sophisticated software, the physician can view the radiation dose 3-dimensionally, maximizing the cancer-killing radiation to the tumor while minimizing radiation to other areas of the body.
- Our Linear Accelerator has image guidance capability with cone beam CT to improve the precision and accuracy of treatment delivery during each treatment session. This is especially useful in organs that move, such as the lungs, liver, pancreas and prostrate gland.
- We offer Volumetric modulated arc therapy (VMAT), a novel radiation therapy technique that delivers the radiation dose continuously as the treatment machine rotates. This technique accurately shapes the radiation dose to the tumor while minimizing the dose to the organs surrounding the tumor in less time than IMRT.
- Patient consultations
- We currently have the only radiation oncologist in Davidson County.
