Trilogy™ Treatment for Stomach Cancer
Experienced radiation oncologists at Cancer Treatment Centers of America (CTCA) utilize one of the most sophisticated radiation therapy delivery systems available: Varian’s Trilogy™. This cutting-edge tool targets radiation treatment so precisely, it avoids harm to the pancreas, kidneys and other normal tissue close to the stomach.
There are several advantages of using Trilogy radiation therapy to treat stomach cancer, including:
- Multi-capability: Your care team can plan and deliver SmartBeam™ intensity modulated radiation therapy and/or dynamic targeting image guided radiation therapy (IGRT) from one machine.
- RapidArc™ Technology: The system rotates a full 360 degrees around you to deliver an optimal dose of radiation to a tumor from all angles.
- Real-time Imaging: Your care team can monitor tumor motion during your treatment to ensure the system adjusts, as needed, to pinpoint your treatment to the tumor.
- Speed in Delivering Treatment: You spend less time on the treatment table receiving radiation therapy because Trilogy radiation therapy is extremely fast and efficient in comparison to some types of radiation treatments for stomach cancer.
