We use this advanced CT scanner for radiation therapy planning.
Some advantages of the LightSpeed RT® technology include:
- The wide bore, or opening, allows for more flexible positioning of our patients, so we can see large areas of the body for more precise treatment planning.
- This advanced, multi-slice imaging technology provides a high level of detail of tumors and healthy tissues alike.
- Respiratory gating helps control for movement as a result of breathing. The result is higher quality images that allow our radiation oncologists to precisely target tumors, while sparing healthy tissue and organs.
