We will also offer a wide spectrum of sophisticated imaging technologies — including MRI, CT, PET scans, PET/CT, ultrasound, and mammography — to determine the diagnosis and stage of your cancer. In addition, our patients will have access to a robust radiation treatment planning system that integrates interventional radiographic services (which use state-of-the-art, minimally invasive tools for cancer diagnosis and management) with innovative radiation therapy methods — including a large-bore CT simulator, two state-of-the-art linear accelerators, and direct access to proton therapy (a very focused treatment method that limits doses to areas outside of the tumor target). These approaches allow us to provide the most-precise treatment possible while reducing radiation exposure to healthy tissue.
