ORMC Offers Latest Radiation Therapy Treatment

February 22, 2010

Middletown, NY – Orange Regional’s Eleanor T. Snow Radiation Oncology Center, located at the Orange Regional Medical Pavilion, 75 Crystal Run Road, Middletown, now offers the new RapidArc Image Guided Radiation Therapy (IGRT) technology from Varian Medical Systems. This latest technology helps our on-site radiation oncologists clearly see, precisely target, effectively and safely treat and carefully track tumors, while limiting radiation exposure to surrounding tissue and vital organs. This means patients experience shorter treatment sessions and fewer side effects.

“Radiation therapy is one of the safest, most effective ways to treat cancer. This state-of-the-art technology will enable us to treat patients with the most advanced radiation therapy techniques, using the most clinically efficient processes in the world,” said Orange Regional’s Chairman of Radiation Oncology, Dr. Thomas Eanelli. “It provides us with tremendous versatility and precision for customizing treatments according to the specific needs of each patient.”

This new IGRT system is capable of real-time tumor tracking and automated patient positioning which enables clinicians to deliver concentrated radiation doses directly to the tumor while protecting surrounding healthy tissue. Radiation can be delivered quickly and with great precision which translates into faster treatments, greater patient comfort and the potential for better outcomes.
