Technology Varian’s TrueBeam Linear Accelerator
is a newly advanced technology that represents an exponential leap forward in the speed, power and precision of radiation therapy. The TrueBeam Linear Accelerator delivers radiation at a faster dose rate than most conventional linear accelerators, which translates into shorter treatment times for patients, even cutting treatment periods up to 50%. The TrueBeam technology also has a 4D imaging system and respiratory gating that improves accuracy to under a millimeter and reduces radiation exposure to the patient by one-quarter.
The Marian PET/CT Center
includes a PET/CT scanner and a state-of-the-art CT scanner dedicated for patients undergoing treatment planning for radiation therapy. Using these scanners, physicians will be able to quickly and accurately identify tumors, as well as healthy tissues to be avoided. In addition to the highest quality images available today, these scanners will also provide Mission Hope physicians with the ability to target movement in a technique called 4 Dimensional Computed Tomography (4DCT).
MultiCare Platinum Prone Breast Biopsy Table
is offered within the Marian Breast Imaging Center and offers the latest advances in stereotactic technology making it the ideal system for characterization of calcifications, masses and architectural distortions.
