Specialized equipment to detect and treat cancers early
New technology available at the Davis Cancer Pavilion delivers radiation to various parts of the body with tremendous accuracy and precision, enhancing short-course radiotherapy treatment programs such as in stereotactic body radiotherapy and radiosurgery. Further integration with surface imaging systems allows for real-time motion management, making radiotherapy delivery to exacting treatment sites, such as the breast and prostate gland, even safer and more effective.
Special radiation technologies:
- Intensity modulated radiation therapy (IMRT)
- Stereotactic radiosurgery (SRS)
- Stereotactic body radiation therapy (SBRT)
- Short course radiation therapy for prostate cancer combined with a next-generation hydrogel spacer
- Use of an MR-only radiotherapy simulator (MRCAT) for treatment planning related to primary and metastatic tumors in the brain - the first to offer this technology in the United States
- Image guided radiation therapy (IGRT)
- High dose rate brachytherapy, including mammosite treatment
- Total body irradiation for bone marrow transplantation
- Total skin irradiation for cutaneous lymphoma
- Systemic precision (targeted) radio ligand (conjugate) therapies for metastatic cancers of the prostate, GI neuroendocrine systems, and lymphoma (thyroid radio Iodine therapy)
- Spheres radionuclide therapy for liver tumors
- Intraoperative breast radiotherapy using IntraBeam Technology
- Proton Beam Radiotherapy is available at the University of Florida Proton Therapy Institute in Jacksonville, Florida
