Complex IMRT treatment delivers more radiation to the cancer and less to nearby healthy tissue.
Radiation Treatment for Cancer at Southwestern Vermont Regional Cancer Center
For outstanding radiation therapy, you need technology and expertise. At Southwestern Vermont Regional Cancer Center (SVRCC), we have the technology — a new state-of-the-art linear accelerator, a complete digital radiology system with PET/CT, and MRI fusion capability.
We also have the expertise thanks to a highly trained staff which includes radiation therapists, radiation oncologists, nurses, a physicist, and a dosimetrist.
Image-Guided Prostate Treatment
Using a special technique for placing tiny gold markers in the prostate, the cancer center can combine CT and MRI images to guide radiation therapy more accurately than ever before.
Advanced Protocol for Breast Cancer
Using more advanced treatment planning, we can treat both the tumor bed and breast tissue at the same time with better results and fewer side effects, such as skin toxicity.
