Cancer Treated with Radiation Therapy

http://youtu.be/Ap4HV-3VBnY James J. Urbanic, MD, a radiation oncologist, and Carnell J. Hampton, PhD, a physicist at the Comprehensive Cancer Center at Wake Forest Baptist Health, use the most advanced linear accelerator to treat lung cancer. The Elekta Axesse™ image guided linear accelerator offers highly-accurate targeting of tumors and lesions virtually anywhere in the body. Typically requiring only one to five treatments, it achieves excellent results in fewer treatments than required by standard radiotherapy. Radiation therapy with these techniques is a treatment modality for a wide range of cancers including lung, prostate, head and neck, esophageal, spinal cord, pancreatic, liver metastases, recurrent gynecologic cancers, bone metastasis and adrenal cancer.
