New Cancer Treatment Technology Now Available Close to Home at James E. Cary Cancer Center

LinacWith new state-of-the-art equipment and facility expansion at the James E. Cary Cancer Center (JECCC)  it’s now possible to get even more sophisticated cancer radiation treatment close to home. Newly installed technology delivers precise treatment in as little as a few minutes. Advanced radiation treatment is available to cancer patients thanks to the James E.Cary Cancer Center’s multi-million dollar investment in facilities and equipment, which includes the Elekta InfinityTM linear accelerator, an image-guided radiation therapy system.

Bob Hess, Director at JECCC explains that faster, more accurate and convenient treatments help all patients, but especially those who are uncomfortable, claustrophobic or need to be immobilized during treatment. He says JECCC also now offers stereotactic radiobodysurgery, which delivers higher doses of radiation over a shorter length of time. “Patients don’t need as many treatments and it’s proven to be very effective.”
