The Cancer Treatment Center's spacious infusion suite has 11 individual
chemotherapy stations, each equipped with guest seating, fully-reclining
patient chair, 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.
All rooms are comfortably and have seating room for friends and/or family.
Having numerous rooms allows for quick patient set up and improved flow;
which decreases wait times.
CT Scanner and Treatment Planning
The Roger S. Good Cancer Treatment Center’s 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.
The Roger S. Cancer Treatment Center features an Elekta Infinity Linear
Accelerator. The Linear accelerator is equipped with state-of-the-art
technology which utilizes the most innovative beam-shaping solution for
cancer treatments. The Elekta Infinity boasts an intelligent beam shaping
multi-leaf collimation system which combines leaf speeds that are twice
as fast as conventional devices. The end result of such sophisticated
technology allows for more fast, more accurate, and more versatile radiation
Elekta Infinity integrates the Elekta Synergy image-guided workflow in
a comprehensive treatment system that includes the Volumetric Modulated
Arc Therapy (VMAT). VMAT combines superior dose conformance and treatment
speed, enabling clinicians to “shrink wrap” the dose around
the tumor. This feature is very important for the patients because they
can receive their radiation treatments with speed and confidence.
The Elekta Infinity also has superior capabilities in terms of imaging,
such as Cone Beam CT (CBCT). The therapists can now image before initiating
a radiation treatment and visualize the exact location of the tumor volume
in three dimensions and aim with more precision. This capability is due
to the fact that there is a kilovoltage x-ray tube within the machine,
thereby producing better quality images. The advantage is that this allows
the radiation oncologist to escalate the doses and shrink the margins
around the tumor with more confidence, therefore decreasing doses to normal tissues.
We are proud to offer advanced IMRT treatments plans, VMAT, conventional
3D, electron treatments for skin cancers, and soon we will be able to
offer our community Stereotactic Radiosurgery (SRS) as well as Stereotactic
Body Radiation Therapy (SBRT). The friendly radiation staff team has many
years of experience and continues to advance in training and treatment
modalities. We invite the community to come and tour our facility and
allow us to care for your cancer needs. Se Habla Espanol.
