Targeted Radiation Therapies
The LCRP is the only cancer program in the region where patients can be treated with the advanced CyberKnife for radiation therapy. The robotic CyberKnife treats difficult tumors with precision radiation and can automatically adjust to the patient's movements, such as breathing, which minimizes surrounding tissue damage.
TrueBeam is an advancement on traditional radiation, this system is more accurate and creates shorter treatment schedules.
Radiofrequency ablation is used in tumors of the liver, bone, spleen, pancreas, breast and adrenal glands that provides a reasonable alternative for patients who are not candidates for definitive surgical resections of lung malignancies.
Research Innovation at the LCRP
As a National Cancer Institute Community Oncology Research Program (NCORP) site, clinical research is one of the top goals of the LCRP. Every month the LCRP initiates several new clinical trials and anticipates having trials to offer patients with virtually every type and stage of cancer. Scientific breakthroughs lead to positive changes in the fight against cancer and these trials will assist us in our dedication to deliver the best level of patient care.
