Individualized Treatment Options
Electron Beam Therapy
Electron beam radiation therapy is used to treat lymphoma in the skin. There are two types of electron beam radiation therapy. If one or more spots on the body will be treated, this is called spot treatment. If the entire surface of the skin will be treated, this is called total skin electron beam (TSEB) therapy. Electrons do not go deep in your body, so the dose of radiation to deeper tissues is minimal.
Image-Guided Radiation Therapy (IGRT)
The most advanced form of radiation therapy available, IGRT enables doctors to precisely locate and visualize the tumor before each dose is administered. Our state-of-the-art delivery system enables doctors to choose the most appropriate treatment for treating cancer in the body, head or neck, and deliver treatments all on one machine in a single room.
Intensity Modulated Radiation Therapy (IMRT)
With fewer side effects than standard radiation therapy, IMRT is a highly accurate radiation instrument that spares normal tissue, allows for superior dose distributions, and is able to treat tumors near critical structures.
