Radiation Therapy Designed Just For You
Radiation therapy uses various forms of radiation to safely and effectively treat all types of cancer and other diseases. One way to administer radiation therapy is through the use of a linear accelerator – which can be used to deliver external beam radiation to almost any area of the body. Thanks to the addition of a new Varian TrueBeam® linear accelerator, patients receiving radiation therapy will experience:
Less time on the table, which helps to minimize side effects
- Fewer treatments to reduce disruption to everyday life
- Increased precision to minimize damage to surrounding healthy tissue
- Ability to a variety of cancer types, including small brain tumors
The machine, which was purchased through a $1 million donation from the Fairfield Medical Center Foundation, destroys cancer cells by delivering heightened doses of high-energy waves with exceptional accuracy.
Fairfield Medical Center has improved patient care through the addition of a new linear accelerator system to our radiation oncology department. Learn more about how this new machine allows our team to expand treatment options for our patients and improve the speed and precision of their care.
