Manatee Cancer Center provides patients with some of the most advanced technologies available to treat cancer. Some of the treatments and technologies available at Manatee Cancer Center include:
Intensity Modulated Radiation Therapy (IMRT) – a sophisticated type of external beam radiotherapy which allows delivery of precisely targeted radiation beams to tumors, while sparing the surrounding healthy organs and tissues.
Image Guided Radiotherapy (IGRT) – visualized CT scans that verify target locations immediately before treatment delivery. In conjunction with IMRT, this allows for unprecedented accuracy in delivering radiotherapy.
MammoSite® Radiation Therapy System – a highly targeted procedure performed after
a lumpectomy that uses a catheter (or catheters) to insert a radiation seed directly into the
breast for a few minutes, twice a day for five days. After each treatment, the seed is
removed and no radiation remains in the breast between treatments.
High Dose Rate Brachytherapy (HDR) – an innovative form of internal radiotherapy that places radioactive materials directly
in contact with cancer tissues using catheters or wires, which are then removed when
a curative dose has been delivered to the cancer. This comprehensive, aggressive
approach to treatment ensures the maximum radiation dose is given where you need it
most, while sparing the healthy surrounding tissue.
Prostate Seed Implants – rice-sized “seeds” of radioactive material that are placed into a cancerous prostate. Seeds
can be left in place permanently, as they give off radiation for a specific period of time
(weeks or months), and do not need to be removed once the radiation is gone. Due to
their high success rate, prostate seed implants are an alternative to radical surgery, and
are one of the most popular radiation procedures in the United States.
