Area cancer patients have access to the most sophisticated radiation treatment available today at the Sparta Cancer Center, where the most advanced technology allows the use of imaging to deliver radiation precisely to a tumor without damaging surrounding healthy tissue.
Sparta Cancer Center’s sophisticated team of radiation oncologists are offering patients new Image Guided Radiation Therapy (IGRT) and Stereotactic Body Radiotherapy (SBRT) treatments to improve their patient’s quality of life and chance of long-term survival.
These innovative image technologies, combined with more advanced delivery systems, allow our caring, oncologists to superbly target tumor treatment and treat previously unreachable, untreatable and resistant tumors in record time!
Image Guided Radiation Therapy
IGRT allows clinicians to both image and treat patients at the same time, in the same location. The result is unmatched clinical confidence, enabling more aggressive treatment of tumors while minimizing side effects. In addition, IGRT allows Sparta Cancer Center doctors to deliver higher doses of radiation safely at one time, shortening overall treatment time. That means fewer visits by the patient. Tumors that were previously untreatable because of their proximity to organs or the spinal cord, can now be effectively treated.
Stereotactic Body Radiotherapy
The importance of SBRT is that it bridges the gap between radiosurgery and radiation therapy. This has drastically increased the range of tumors suitable for treatment.
This molecular revolution in medicine enables treatment of people with inoperable tumors, such as in the brain, as well as metastatic disease.
SBRT’s localization and immobilization devices, together with image guidance, plays a key role. Once the target has been accurately localized, the delivery of radiation is extremely precise.
