Precise tumor location to minimize side effects

A cancer patient should review all treatment options available with his or her healthcare team. The medical team of Chesapeake Oncology Hematology Associates combines its expertise and medical infrastructure to offer personalized treatment plans to patients.

Our radiation treatment technology can deliver multiple forms of external beam radiation therapy through one machine. We use 3D images to assist clinicians in administering the radiation doses for multiple types of tumors with precision.

Our systems have advanced medical linear accelerators capable of administering radiotherapy treatments from almost all possible angles. It concentrates radiation doses on the tumor to give minimal radiation exposure to the surrounding healthy tissues. Our systems can treat several types of cancers, including those in the lung, head and neck, breast, and prostate. Our treatment range includes:

  • Intensity-Modulated Radiation Therapy (IMRT)
  • Image-Guided Radiation Therapy (IGRT)
  • Stereotactic Body Radiation Therapy (SBRT) Or Stereotactic Ablative Body Radiation (SABR)
  • Stereotactic Radiosurgery (SRS)
  • Proton Therapy

Our integrated systems use image-guided radiotherapy and radiosurgery to treat cancers of multiple organs wherever radiation treatment is needed. Some benefits of our linear accelerator system include:

  • A digital platform to ensure patient safety and faster treatments
  • Accurate tumor tracking using advanced imaging platforms
  • Advanced quality imaging techniques
  • Improved tumor targeting and treatments using optical surface imaging

GPS Tumor Tracking

Our precise radiation therapy technology uses uninterrupted organ-motion detection to ensure that only tumor tissues are destroyed. Internal organs may slightly alter their positions due to breathing and intestine movements. Our motion detection techniques assist our radiation therapists in tracking organ movements in real-time. This allows our therapist to track the organ and make necessary adjustments, concentrating the radiation on the tumor.

Your radiation oncologist will discuss personalized treatment options depending on your case.
