External Beam Radiation Therapy

Entrance to the Spagnoli Family Cancer Center

External Beam Radiation for Cancer Treatment

The delivery of state-of-the-art teleradiography begins with the ability to locate and visualize the affected site and develop an effective treatment plan. Our physicians utilize a variety of state-of-the-art technology that helps in the treatment planning stage, as well as the administration of external beam radiation therapy to the patient.

At the Eleanor T. Snow Radiation Oncology Center, physicians and technicians utilize the most sophisticated technology available to plan each patient’s customized radiation therapy regimen. This technology includes:

A CT Simulator

The CT Simulator is an advanced geometric planning system that scans the patients allowing the physician to locate the tumor, determine its volume and shape, and mark the areas to be treated.

High-Precision Radiotherapy Treatment

The administration of external beam radiation therapy requires the production of high energy photon energies which are generated through a Linear Accelerator. At Orange Regional Medical Center’s Eleanor T. Snow Radiation Oncology Center, our state-of-the-art TrueBeam Linear Accelerator  by Varian is considered the most sophisticated and versatile unit of its kind.

Utilizing this technology, our radiation oncology team possesses the ability to treat superficial tumors (tumors close to the surface of the skin), as well as those tumors located deep within the body. In effect, this technology insures our ability to treat every cancer patient requiring “external beam radiation.”
