Sun City Center Treatment Options

Tampa Bay Cancer Center provides patients with some of themost advanced technologies available to treat cancer. Some of the treatments and technologies available at Tampa Bay 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.

  • Three-Dimensional Conformal Radiation Therapy (3D-CRT) – a sophisticated set of computer assisted tomography scans (CT or CAT scans) and/or magnetic resonance imaging scans (MR or MRI scans) that create detailed, three-dimensional representations of tumors and surrounding organs for precise delivery of radiation beams to the exact size and shape of the tumor.

  • 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.

  • 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.
