Technological breakthroughs bring about more powerful means for fighting medical conditions. At Lonestar Radiation Oncology, we are committed to bringing these advanced treatment options to patients who need them.
Today, we offer breakthrough technologies, including Intensity-Modulated Radiation Therapy (IMRT), Image-Guided Radiation Therapy (IGRT), High-Dose Rate (HDR) Brachytherapy, Positron Emission Mammography (PEM) and AccuBoost®, that offer new hope to individuals who are battling cancer.
IMRT is the most technologically advanced and most precise method of external beam radiation therapy available. IGRT takes this technology one step further by delivering high doses of radiation directly to the treatment area while sparing surrounding tissue. Both therapies provide cancer treatment more precisely and with less risk, and both are beneficial for many different types of cancer. PEM is a special form of Positron Emission Tomography (PET) that provides a more accurate picture of abnormal breast tissue, enhancing breast cancer diagnosis, staging, treatment planning and therapy management while helping to avoid unnecessary biopsies and surgeries.
AccuBoost® is a system for providing the “boost dose” of radiation therapy for Breast Conservation Treatment (BCT) with greater accuracy and precision, further reducing the chance of recurrence.
As passionate as we are about our cancer fighting technologies, we know that treatment is only half the equation. The rest lies in human kindness – trust, compassion and care. It is our mission to excel at both—giving you the best chance to get back to a happy, healthy life.
