Radiation oncologists at the Enloe Regional Cancer Center are trained to diagnose, treat and manage common cancers as well as unusual and rare tumor types. They administer treatments with close collaboration of staff at the Radiation Oncology Department.
treatments and technologies include:
- Stereotactic Body Radiation Therapy. Our new TrueBeam linear accelerator is the most technologically advanced equipment of its kind in Butte County. It offers the most accurate and quickest treatments. For some patients it can provide six-weeks of treatments in as little as one to five treatments. The integration of a CT scanner into the radiation treatment pinpoints the delivery of the radiation therapy. This precise localization of tumors with sub-millimeter accuracy allows the radiation oncologist to deliver extremely high doses of radiation to the tumor while protecting normal tissue.
- Intensity Modulated Radiation Therapy (IMRT). Our linear accelerators offer this precise treatment to target and destroy cancerous tumors while minimizing damage to surrounding healthy tissue.
- Prostate cancer treatments. A multitude of options are available to our prostate cancer patients, including IMRT.
