Eleanor N. Dana Cancer Care Center to Offer TrueBeam Radiation Technology
There are new advancements in radiation therapy with patients firmly in mind.
The University of Toledo Medical Center’s Eleanor N. Dana Cancer Care Center now features the latest in innovative cancer treatments – The Varian TrueBeam™ System. This radiotherapy and radiosurgery treatment system can facilitate fast, accurate image-guided radiotherapy.
Radiotherapy dose delivery rates are 40-140 higher than in earlier generations of Varian™ technology. This results in greater comfort for patients, as treatment times are much shorter.
The TrueBeam™ system also delivers high doses of radiotherapy in fractions of millimeters: keeping healthy tissue and organs safe while aggressively targeting tumors. Even tumors that move when a patient breathes can be targeted, which is especially beneficial for tumors in the lung or breast.
The Eleanor N. Dana Cancer Care Center is the first in the area to implement this cutting-edge equipment. This is yet another way we provide patients with a multitude of options, including access to experimental treatments and therapies that cannot be found elsewhere.
Many of us are touched by cancer at some point in our lives. At the University of Toledo Medical Center’s Eleanor N. Dana Cancer Center, we will guide you through all the stages of your care, help reduce your anxiety and empower you with knowledge about your condition.
The new TrueBeam™ Technology reflects our commitment to helping our patients conquer their illness and regain their confidence.
