Staten Island Radiation Oncology treats most body site cancers with advanced technology that minimizes radiation exposure to nearby, uninvolved structures. This allows more precise delivery of high radiation doses to kill the cancer for better outcomes with increased patient safety. Intensity Modulated Radiation Therapy (IMRT) allows our physicians to “sculpt” the treatment to conform to certain cancers. With RapidArc, the treatment time is just a very few minutes, so that involuntary motion on the treatment table is reduced. We have On Board Imaging (OBI) as well as Cone Beam CT Scanning (CBCT) two forms of IGRT (Image Guided Radiation Therapy) that we use daily before each treatment delivery. This ensures daily treatment accuracy, refining the exact area to be treated every time. In this way, impact on daily life is kept to a bare minimum, while the cancer is treated for very best results possible with radiation both short and long term.
