Our Target Is The Tumor, Not Your Healthy Tissue
Radiation therapy is an integral part of cancer care. It may be a primary therapy by itself or radiation therapy can be combined with chemotherapy, hormone therapy, surgery or sometimes, all three.
The Division of Radiation Oncology at the Beverly Hills Cancer Center is comprised of highly trained experts in the fields of radiation oncology and stereotactic radiosurgery. We offer among the very best, contemporary, state-of-the-art radiation oncology treatments in the private and comfortable setting of our Los Angeles treatment center. We strive to provide the highest quality of care to all of our patients with the highest level of expertise and the most up to date technology available.
On-site Diagnostic Imaging Helps Us Locate The Target
The Beverly Hills Cancer Center is fortunate to have a fully equipped diagnostic imaging facility which includes PET/CT, MRI, CT scans, ultrasound and bone scans. This allows the physicians to utilize detailed information about the location of the tumor and its proximity to other organs, nerves, arteries and tissues in order to more precisely target your tumor and minimize radiation exposure to other tissues. With more detailed and sophisticated treatment planning, radiation treatments can often be delivered more effectively to the tumor, while minimizing radiation and potential side effects to normal tissues throughout the body.Learn more about our Diagnostic Imaging Center »
Your Safety Is Paramount
At the Beverly Hills Cancer Center, patient safety is our first priority. Our radiation treatment staff are highly trained and the radiation treatment facility was built to specification to ensure that radiation treatments can be delivered to all patients as safely and effectively as possible . Whether radiation is being given to the skin or the brain, we take all necessary steps to ensure that patients will not be exposed to unnecessary radiation and we are diligent to reduce unnecessary or preventable radiation exposureas much as possible.
The outcomes of radiation therapy treatments are often dependent on the accuracy and precision of the radiation therapy treatment. Several technological advancements have improved patient outcomes and reduced treatment errors, including the introduction of 3D and 4D radiation treatment planning andsophisticated Electronic Medical Record systems. At the Beverly Hills Cancer Center we use the most advanced Healthcare Informatics System, MOSAIQ, to assure the quality, safety, and accuracy of each highly sophisticated treatment.
Types Of Radiation Therapy
We are very proud to have among the best Radiation Oncologists who will use different methods of radiation therapy to treat your cancer. The type of radiation used for each individual patient will depend on several factors, including the type of cancer being treated, its location within the body and proximity to other organs, tissues, arteries and nerves, whether it has spread to other organs, such as the liver, lung and brain,etc. Each patient’s radiation treatments are customized and uniquely crafted to based on that patient’s circumstances.
Three-dimensional Conformal Radiation Therapy (3D CRT)
Using advanced imaging technology to create 3D images helps our radiation oncologists define the target tumor with great precision.Learn more »
Intensity-modulated Radiation Therapy (IMRT)
By combining advanced imaging technology with different radiation beam intensities, our radiation oncologists can pinpoint and irradiate tumors while preserving surrounding healthy tissue.Learn more »
Stereotactic Body Radio Radiotherapy (SBRT) and STEREOTACTIC RADIOSURGERY (srs)
This type of radiation therapy delivers high doses of focal and pinpoint radiation to tumors in a single or limited number of treatments.Learn more »
High Dose Rate (HDR) Brachytherapy
For this internal radiation treatment procedure, the Radiation Oncologist places a very small, short-range radiation source (radioisotope) directly at the site of the tumor, usually in 3-5 sessions. This allows radiation to be given from the inside out and maximizes radiation dose to the tumor.Learn more »
Advanced Imaging Technology For Radiation Therapy
Image-guided Radiation Therapy (IGRT)
Because tumors can move between treatments, radiation oncologists at the Beverly Hills Cancer Center take advantage of image guidance technology, allowing them to correctly target even the most complex of cancers.
Respiratory Gating And 4D CT
With advanced CT scanning software, Beverly Hills Cancer Center radiation oncologists can determine not just where a tumor is at one time, but also where it will be when it is in motion, as for example, a lung cancer that moves with each breath.Learn more »
Image-guided Cyberknife Radiosurgery
The Cyberknife system uses image guidance and computer controlled robotics to deliver pinpoint, high dose radiation beams from virtually any direction with sub-millimeter accuracy.Learn more »
