Radiation Therapy

The Cancer Center provides radiation treatment therapy from experienced professionals, using state-of-the-art equipment. The radiation oncologist uses a treatment planning system computer and a CT treatment simulator to plan individualized treatments.

IMRT

Intensity Modulation Radiation Therapy (IMRT) delivers higher doses of radiation only to the tumor tissue, and spares the surrounding normal tissue.

MammoSite and SAVI

Accelerated, partial breast irradiation uses MammoSite and SAVI. These treatments allow breast cancer patients to receive treatment twice a day for five days, instead of the traditional 30+ days.

Stereotactic Radiosurgery

Stereotactic radiosurgery is not actually a surgery, but rather a precise, targeted method of radiation therapy or radiotherapy. With this treatment, targeted radiotherapy is delivered in a single, high dose. It's an alternative to invasive surgery typically used for tumors on the brain and spine, but has other uses as well.

In the event that you need more specialized treatment, St.Vincent Anderson Regional Cancer Center is a sister-hospital with St.Vincent Cancer Care Center in Indianapolis.
