Radiation Oncology

AnMed Health - Radiation OncologyRadiation therapy uses radiation to destroy or damage cancer cells. It is one of the most common cancer treatments, and can be used by itself or with other forms of treatment. Radiation is a local treatment, which means it only affects the part of the body being treated. New technology for delivering radiation allows doctors to pinpoint the cancer cells much more precisely than ever before.

At AnMed Health, our radiation oncology department exclusively uses Varian equipment, one of the most respected brands of radiation equipment. High dose radiation (HDR) treatment is a precise science that requires planning and teamwork between radiation oncologists, physicists, dosimetrists and other specialists. AnMed Health’s purchase of Varian’s TrueBeam™ STx with BrainLab ExacTrac System for high-precision intensity modulated radiation therapy (IMRT) with image-guided radiotherapy (IGRT) to perform very conformal treatments including stereotactic body radiotherapy (SBRT) and stereotactic radiosurgery (SRS) provides our excellent team of Radiation Oncologists, Physicists, Dosimetrists, Therapists and RNs with state-of-the art equipment. Our equipment coupled with patient-centered care will make treatment extremely effective in destroying cancers of lung, breast, prostate, head and neck, and other types of cancer.

Radiation Oncology is located in the Cancer Center and offers the following state-of-the-art technologies:
  • Linear accelerators deliver deep-penetrating photon and more superficial electron beams while minimizing effects to the skin.
  • IMRT (Intensity Modulated Radiation Therapy) delivers high-dose radiation to tumors with great accuracy while minimizing radiation doses to the surrounding body parts
  • Light Speed Wide-bore CT scanner helps radiation oncologists and dosimetrists with precise radiation therapy planning using advanced oncology clinical applications.
  • Brachytherapy uses radioactive seeds permanently implanted or a high dose rate (HDR) source temporarily deployed directly into or immediately adjacent to the disease. Outpatient brachytherapy available for lung, GYN, prostate and breast cancer patients.
  • Partial breast radiotherapy is available to early stage breast cancer patients that meet certain criteria.
Radiation Oncology is open weekdays from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. and can be reached by calling (864) 512-4600.
