A linear accelerator (LINAC) customizes high energy x-rays to conform to a tumor’s shape and destroy cancer cells while sparing surrounding normal tissue.
“Fast, precise, accurate and convenient”
A single-photon emission computerized tomography (SPECT) scan lets your doctor analyze the function of some of your internal organs. A SPECT scan is a type of nuclear imaging test, which means it uses a radioactive substance and a special camera to create 3-D pictures.
The PET/CT Scan is a cutting-edge nuclear medicine imaging technique which is considered the new standard for diagnosis of cancerous tumors. It is a combination between the PET scan (Positron Emission Tomography) which is able to detect cancerous cell abnormalities at the molecular level with the CT scan (Computed Tomography) which is capable of detecting physiologic abnormalities.
The underlying idea of radiosurgery is a high-intensity beams of radiation are used with great precision and accuracy to destroy cancer cells within 1-5 treatment sessions as opposed to several weeks with conventional radiotherapy
Short-distance therapy involves placing radioactive material directly inside your body or close to or directly in the tumor. The material will remain there either temporarily or permanently, depending on type of cancer. The radioactive element used is iridium 192, its features are similar to a small metal plate.
