Elekta Linear Accelerator: Our Shoreline facility is home to CT's newest radiation therapy machine, which is especially beneficial for patients with left-sided breast cancer.
Deep Inspiration Breath-Hold Technique: Our radiation therapy machines sync with a patient's breathing to reduce damage to healthy tissue.
SpaceOAR System: An injectable gel creates space around the prostate to limit the effects of radiation on the GI system and surrounding tissue.
Radiology: Diagnostic Imaging
Wide Open Bore MRI: This new alternative to traditional and open MRI - which has a larger opening and shorter length - helps patients experience less anxiety and claustrophobia. These "high-field" units produce crisp, clear images so doctors can make an accurate diagnosis.
