When choosing what equipment to purchase for the Corsicana Cancer Center, our Medical Physicist looked to his years of experience working at many high profile hospitals in the United States and chose the equipment that would produce the best results for our patients.
OurGeneral Electric CT Scanner uses a series of X-rays that are reconstructed into multi dimensional images with crisp anatomical detail. It is an 8 slice CT scanner which creates a diagnostic quality image of your tumor in less time and with less error. Because it works quickly, it reduces motion during the scan which results in a more effective and more accurate treatment plan.
But it takes more than good people and a precise scanner to develop the best radiation treatment plan. ThePhilips Treatment Planning System was purchased to ensure that Corsicana Cancer Center could provide its staff with the latest and most accurate and interactive planning tools. This system has the industry’s most accurate true 3 dimensional dose calculation algorithm and includes powerful tools that allow us to use those crisp images (from the 8 slice scanner) of actual patient anatomy to ensure our treatment plans are fast, precise and based on actual real time patient data.
After careful consideration we installed the industry leading Varian Linear Accelerator with On Board Imaging to make certain that our patients had the best radiation delivery options available to them. It is a high performance, reliable machine that offers:
When choosing our patient information management system, Corsicana Cancer Center wanted a system that would integrate with all other medical oncology patient data. Our Center usesMOSAIQ byElekta Electronic Medical Records. MOSAIQ connects to our linear accelerator and treatment planning system and manages images and data allowing fast and efficient access to your information for your team. It has safety and quality assurance tools like checklists, care plans, biometric patient identification, patient positioning and verification tools allowing your team to provide you with safe and accurate treatment.
All of this technology working together allowsIntensity-Modulated Radiation Therapy (IMRT)which individualizes radiation treatments specifically for your body and your cancer. IMRT uses multiple small radiation beams of varying intensities to precisely radiate by conforming to the exact shape of a tumor. Unlike older treatment systems, the radiation intensity of each beam is controlled, and the beam shape changes throughout each treatment. The goal of IMRT is to bend the radiation dose to avoid or reduce exposure of healthy tissue and limit the side effects of treatment. And Image Guided Radiation Therapy (IGRT)locates the target before the treatment is delivered.
