Multiple high-intensity radiation beams are utilized to target both benign and
cancerous tumors in the brain.
The beams are tightly focused and accurate in order to avoid damaging healthy cells.
SBRT is very effective for the treatment of prostate cancer, lung cancer and kidney cancer. SBRT can also be used to treat tumors that have spread to the bone, lung, liver, and lymph nodes.
VMAT is an advanced form of intensity-modulated radiation therapy (IMRT) that uses state of the art computer algorithms to calculate and deliver radiation directly to cancer cells.
To ensure safe and accurate delivery of the radiation treatments, CRO utilizes Image Guided Radiation Therapy (IGRT) with daily cone beam CT scans prior to treatment to ensure that the target volume is localized accurately prior to each treatment.
A highly effective treatment for prostate cancer that involves implanting permanent radioactive Iodine or Palladium seeds the size of a grain of rice directly into the prostate. This delivers a very high dose of radiation to the prostate while minimizing radiation exposure to surrounding normal tissues.
Utilizes a high-activity Iridium source to deliver radiation directly into the tumor. This is a temporary implant with treatments lasting less than 15 minutes. Dr. Shah has the most experience with HDR brachytherapy in Pinellas county and is the only one offering HDR brachytherapy for prostate cancers.
Newest and most advanced linear accelerator in Pinellas County.
The first of its kind in Pinellas County and provides the most accurate and precise anatomical definition to ensure proper targeting of cancer cells.
State-of-the-art treatment planning system (TPS) which enables your physician to target the tumor volume precisely while minimizing radiation to your normal structures.
