Dr. Oneita Taylor: We frequently do see patients with locally advanced cervical cancer. Locally advanced cervical cancer is standardly treated with radiation and chemotherapy. The chemotherapy treatment is normally that of cisplatin. The radiotherapy treatment is then utilizing TomoTherapy® image-guided radiation. A specialized CT planning system is also utilized to ensure that we're treating the entire cancer in the cervix and sparing normal tissue. In addition, they undergo High-Dose Rate brachytherapy delivered right to the cervix and vaginal apex.
Cancer Treatment Centers of America utilizes some of the most advanced radiation therapy tools available to treat cervical cancer. In this video, radiation oncologist Dr. Oneita Taylor talks about TomoTherapy® and High-Dose Rate brachytherapy for locally advanced cervical cancer.
