Radiation Oncology

Evidence-Based Cancer Care

Arrowhead Regional Medical Center is equipped with highly advanced radiation therapy equipment such as the Varian 1X with multiple energies and gaited technology as well as Modulated Radiotherapy (1.G .IMRT), an advanced and precise method of external beam radiation therapy that delivers high doses of radiation directly to the tumor while sparing the surrounding healthy tissue.

The linear accelerator technology allows our board-certified Oncologists to customize the radiation dose by varying the amount of radiation given to different parts of the treatment area. This is done with highly accurate technology that creates three-dimensional detail according to the shape, size, and location of the tumor. Moderating radiation exposure helps doctors to help improve cure rates while reducing treatment complications.

Cancers treated include:

  • Brain
  • Breast
  • Cervix
  • Colorectal
  • Head & Neck
  • Lung
