Radiation Oncology Techniques
Delivering the Most Advanced Treatment
Access to the most advanced external beam and internal radiation treatment technology combined with the nation's most experienced doctors makes Fox Chase Cancer Center one of the nation’s top hospitals for radiation cure. Our approaches provide accurate therapies that reduce exposure to surrounding healthy tissue, improve chances of a cure, reduce side effects, increase effectiveness, and, in some cases, replace the need for surgery with less toxicity.
As a clinical trials and teaching organization, Fox Chase radiation oncologists were among the nation's first to use VMAT (Volumetric Modulated Arc Therapy), Stereotactic Radiosurgery and Radiotherapy, CT-on-Rails, Brachytherapy and APBI (Accelerated Partial Breast Irradiation) to successfully treat patients with a variety of cancers.
