Technology

The Department of Human Oncology uses state-of-the-art radiation therapy systems to treat patients. Below is a sample of technologies we currently use.

Treatment Delivery Systems

Varian Truebeam STx

The Varian TrueBeam STx system combines imaging, radiation delivery and motion management to accurately and efficiently treat small targets. It delivers radiation beams that conform to the shape of the tumor.

ViewRay MRIdian Linac

The ViewRay MRIdian Linac is a radiation therapy system that provides continuous high-contrast imaging of soft tissue during treatment. This helps clinicians position the patient, adjust treatment and track patient motion for accurate treatment.

Elekta Flexitron Remote Afterloader

The Elekta Flexitron Remote Afterloader is used to insert a radioactive source directly into a tumor, where it stays for a short time. This form of treatment delivers a precise, localized dose of radiation while minimizing exposure to healthy tissue.
