Patients at Fox Chase Cancer Center Buckingham can take advantage of the latest advances in radiation therapy provided by some of the nation's most experienced doctors using state-of-the-art technologies.

Stereotactic Radiosurgery (SRS) and Stereotactic Radiotherapy (SRT) offer physicians the opportunity to deliver large doses of radiation to very small areas by aiming an X-ray or gamma-ray at a target or tumor. Radiation can be precisely delivered to its target while preserving more healthy tissue than with conventional external beam therapy.

State-of-the-art technologies:

The CyberKnife Robotic Radiosurgery System
CyberKnife
The first radiosurgery system designed to target tumors anywhere in the body with sub-millimeter accuracy, provides treatment for tumors that cannot be removed surgically. Using image-guidance technology and computer-controlled robotics, the CyberKnife system is designed to continuously track the tumor, detect its location, and correct for tumor and patient movement throughout the treatment.

Trilogy Linear Accelerator with Rapid Arc 

Optimized for delivering higher radiation doses to smaller areas over shorter time periods, the Trilogy linear accelerator makes radiation therapy possible for all types and stages of cancer. The new Rapid Arc technology, which creates a smoother and more highly shaped radiation treatment, allows for faster, more comfortable treatment.

LightSpeed RT 16 CT Simulator
Multi-slice CT is one of the most important tools for radiation treatment planning. With sub-millimeter slices and 16-slice coverage, the LightSpeed RT 16 CT Simulator enables rapid visualization of the smallest anatomic details for precise treatment planning, including complete definition of the tumor volume and geometric placement of radiation beams and respiration-gated therapy (treatment timed to a patient's breathing).

Calypso 4D Localization System
Working like a GPS system for the body, Calypso is the world's first real-time tracking method available to locate and internally track prostate tumors throughout treatment-allowing for more precise and accurate radiation targeting. The system enables more accurate treatment by eliminating the uncertainty of organ motion and potentially reducing side effects of treatment.
