Pancreatic Cancer Radiation
Listen to Dr. Oneita Taylor discuss how our radiation oncologists use TomoTherapy®, a highly advanced radiation therapy delivery system, to target and treat to cancer in the pancreas.
Radiation Therapy for Pancreatic Cancer
Even if a tumor is inoperable, CTCA believes pancreatic cancer patients deserve as many treatment options as possible.
Our cancer experts offer innovative radiation therapy options that may be used alone, or in combination with surgery and/or chemotherapy, to treat the disease and/or relieve its symptoms. For treating pancreatic cancer, radiation therapy is often given concurrently with chemotherapy, called chemoradiation.
Since the pancreas is hidden behind other organs, such as the stomach, small intestine, liver, gallbladder, spleen and bile ducts, radiation treatment requires accuracy and precision. Our radiation oncologists offer the latest and most targeted radiation treatments for pancreatic cancer.
With advanced radiation therapy delivery systems, our radiation oncologists are better able to target difficult-to-reach tumors in the pancreas. In addition, using innovative technologies, our radiation oncologists can direct higher radiation doses at pancreatic cancer cells, while reducing exposure to normal, healthy pancreatic tissue.
