Middlesex Health is proud to offer two of the newest, most advanced forms of intensity-modulated radiation therapy available.
Novalis Tx® Linear Accelerator
The Middlesex Hospital Cancer Center is one of only five cancer treatment facilities in Connecticut to offer Novalis Tx® Linear Accelerator technology for IMRT therapy, which provides unprecedented accuracy in pinpointing tumors to deliver more precise, higher doses of radiation with less damage to the surrounding tissue.
Elekta Linear Accelerator
Our Shoreline Cancer Center is home to Connecticut’s newest radiation therapy machine. The Elekta Linear Accelerator includes groundbreaking technology that allows for the treatment of left-sided breast cancer while minimizing the risk of damage to the heart. This technology features the same level of power and precision as the Novalis Tx®, but it adds a key benefit for breast cancer patients: the Deep Inspiration Breath-hold Respiratory Sensor.
