The radiation oncologists at the Cancer Institute at UM St. Joseph Medical Center (UM SJMC) battle cancer using the Varian TrueBeam system for radiotherapy. This innovative and non-invasive approach precisely targets and destroys tumors more accurately than traditional radiation.
We can aggressively and more safely treat even difficult-to-reach tumors – with the maximum dose of radiation over the minimum period of time.
Why Choose UM St. Joseph's Cancer Institute for Radiation Oncology?
Precise: TrueBeam’s advanced imaging technology constantly monitors over 100,000 data points, and can detect the slightest shift in a patient’s position during a treatment session, then automatically readjusts to exactly where the delivery beam should be directed, from any angle.
Effective: TrueBeam allows dose delivery rates that are 40-140% higher than older radiation therapy technology.
Faster: TrueBeam is a faster, more sophisticated imaging technology, and its beam delivery can proceed at a quicker pace as well as reduce the amount of treatment time. Patients recover 30% faster than with older radiation therapy technologies.
Safer: With faster, better imaging and less time required, TrueBeam also reduces patient exposure to X-rays by 25%, making it the safest way to aggressively attack tumors.
With TrueBeam, UM SJMC radiation oncologists can better treat prostate, breast, lung and other hard-to-reach tumors.
