Our latest neuro-imaging technology, tumor-size tracking software, and radiotherapy devices offer detailed information about a patient’s status, allowing us to better define radiation and surgical operating areas and increase our chances of a favorable outcome.
Our Neuro-Oncology Clinic’s multidisciplinary approach allows patients to receive timely treatment and counsel. The doctors discuss patient cases in conference with other medical oncologists, surgeons and radiation oncologists. The research nurse specialist informs physicians about clinical trials for which the patients may be candidates. Together, the team determines the plan of care and discusses it with each patient.
Holy Cross’ Elekta Synergy system is used to target brain tumors. An open design, it is a much more comfortable experience. Known for its good outcomes, the machine’s toxicity levels are very low – and it can treat other areas of the body as well, should the need arise.
