CTC Services

The Cancer Treatment Center's spacious infusion suite has 11 individual chemotherapy stations, each equipped with guest seating, a fully-reclining patient chair, an adjustable television with cable access, windows and privacy curtains. There is also a station customized for patients who need to lie down while receiving chemotherapy. The infusion suite is equipped with a dedicated medication room, allowing for quicker access to medications and streamlined treatment services for our patients.

There are seven private examination rooms within the Cancer Treatment Center and a separate area to take a patient's vital signs. All examination rooms are furnished with advanced equipment and seating room for friends and/or family.

 Linear Accelerator and IMRT

imrtweb.jpgThe Cancer Treatment Center's state-of-the-art linear accelerator offers radiation therapy options unrivaled in the region and places the Center on par with such major teaching hospitals as UCSF and Stanford. The linear accelerator is equipped to perform Intensity-Modulated Radiation Therapy (IMRT)-an advanced type of high-precision radiation. IMRT features computer-controlled linear accelerators that distribute precise radiation doses to malignant tumors or specific areas within the tumor. By controlling the radiation beam's intensity, the dose of radiation can be precisely shaped three-dimensionally to that of the tumor. This also allows for a higher dose of cancer-killing radiation to be delivered to the tumor while protecting the healthy surrounding tissue. This results in better tumor targeting, fewer side effects, and improved treatment outcomes for our patients. 

CT Scanner and Treatment Planningscannerweb.jpg

The Center's advanced CT scanner allows for precise mapping of the shape, size, and location of the cancer. These scans are then sent to a planning computer where physicians can review a high-resolution, three-dimensional image of the tumor. From these pictures, doctors can better optimize the treatment options.
