Radiation Therapy at Chilton Medical Center

Linear AcceleratorAbout half of all cancer patients receive some form of radiation therapy. At the Cancer Center at Chilton Medical Center, our radiation therapy and radiation oncology programs are led by highly-skilled, board-certified radiation oncologists who are true pioneers in radiation therapy and are internationally recognized for innovative services and exceptional care.

We provide our patients with the most technologically-advanced radiation therapy options available, including three dimensional (3-D) conformal external beam therapy and high-performance linear accelerators with multileaf collimation, to destroy cancerous cells and shrink tumors. Some of the cancers we treat include those of the breast, prostate, lung, rectum, colon, cervix, head and neck, stomach, pancreas and uterus.

Chilton Medical Center offers the latest radiation therapy technology that provides 3-D images to pinpoint tumor sites, verify patient positioning, adjust patient positioning when necessary, and complete a treatment all within the standard treatment time slot.
 
Personalized Radiation Therapy and Treatment Plans
At Chilton Medical Center’s Cancer Center, a specialized planning system and a CT simulator are used to plan patient’s radiation treatments. In our radiation oncology program, every patient’s treatment plan is reviewed by our multidisciplinary team of a board-certified radiation oncologist, medical physicist, dosimetrist and radiation therapists. The team also consists of an oncology nurse and social worker who specialize in the needs of radiation patients.

Chilton’s Radiation Oncology Department is accredited by the American College of Radiology. It features the following:

  • 3-Dimensional Conformal Radiotherapy (3-D/CRT)
  • Intensity-Modulated Radiation Therapy (IMRT)
  • Image Guided Radiation Therapy (IGRT)

IMRT uses multiple beams of radiation with varying intensities to permit precise targeting of cancerous tissue. IMRT beams can be precise within a millimeter in targeting just the tumor, allowing physicians to treat previously inoperable, unusual shaped tumors near critical structures such as the spinal cord and delicate organs such as the eye. The incorporation of imaging techniques (IGRT) into the radiation therapy delivery can lead to improved outcomes such as reduced toxicity and better tumor control.
