Westlake Radiation Oncology Medical Center provides cancer patients with a some of the most advanced radiation therapy treatments available, including:
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.
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.
Superficial Radiotherapy (SRT) – a proven skin cancer
treatment method for treating basal and squamous cell
carcinomas since the 1950’s. Because of its non-invasive nature,
SRT is a logical choice for primary lesions that otherwise require
difficult or extensive surgery of sensitive structures in the head
and neck regions such as the fold in the nose, eyelids, lips,
corner of mouth, and the lining of the ear, where surgery would
result in a poor cosmetic outcome.
