By enriching their therapeutic offerings in radiation oncology, Medanta - The Medicity Cancer Institute and the Roentgen-BLK Radiation Oncology Center can now provide patients treatment with the CyberKnife System and expand the patient population that can now benefit from CyberKnife radiosurgery and stereotactic body radiation therapy (SBRT) in the region.
Results of the trial, available in the Journal of Clinical Oncology, show that stereotactic body radiation therapy (SBRT), which delivers ultraprecise radiation, is effective in treating patients with localized prostate cancer in five 30-minute sessions every other day over two weeks.
Emerging modalities like proton therapy, carbon ion radiotherapy, molecular targeted therapies, cancer stem cell biology, tumor-targeted radioisotope therapy, hyperthermia, and stereotactic body radiation therapy are expanded in this edition, which also incorporates the latest advances, expanded sections on imaging, color illustrations, and multimodality approaches.
00 Kavanaugh (radiation oncology, University of Colorado Comprehensive Cancer Center) and Timmerman (image guided stereotactic radiation therapeutics, University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center) demonstrate the power of stereotactic body radiation therapy (SBRT) as a weapon in the cancer-fighting arsenal, and give advice on building a clinical SBRT program.
The program serves more than 1,000 patients each year and provides state-of-the-art equipment, facilities, and advanced treatment technologies including: * RapidArc([R]) IMRT (intensity modulated radiotherapy) * Stereotactic Radiosurgery (SRS) * Stereotactic Body Radiation Therapy (SBRT) * Intensity-Modulated Radiation Therapy (IMRT) * Brachytherapy * Accelerated Partial Breast Irradiation (APBI) * Wide Bore 4D CT Scanner * Robotic Couch * Image Guided Radiotherapy (IGRT) * Respiratory Gating John Muir Health has one of the largest and the most technologically advanced Radiation Oncology programs in the Bay Area.
The Company's leading-edge technologies - the CyberKnife and TomoTherapy Systems - are designed to deliver radiosurgery, stereotactic body radiation therapy, intensity modulated radiation therapy, image guided radiation therapy, and adaptive radiation therapy.
