By using high energy X-rays, radiation oncology can inhibit cancer cells from multiplying and decrease their ability to divide. This therapy is carefully planned to deliver as much radiation as possible to the cancer cells while limiting damage to healthy cells.
Through Advanced Radiation Oncology Center in Gurnee, we offer the most innovative radiation therapy techniques. These include external beam, intensity-modulated and image-guided radiation therapy services using a linear accelerator to deliver radiation from outside of the body. We also provide a unique and specialized stereotactic radiosurgery service using the Gamma Knife® designed to treat brain malignancies.
For prostate cancer, we now have the Calypso® System, widely regarded as the most advanced real-time tracking for prostate radiation therapy. Calypso enables the Vista radiation oncologist to accurately track and precisely hit the tumor without excessive radiation.
