What technology is at this clinic? 

– The Versa HD by Elekta is a sophisticated linear accelerator used to deliver radiation treatment.  The Versa HD is a versatile machine that can treat any type of cancer.  It provides state-of-the-art radiation treatment individualized to your particular cancer.  Treatments last only a few minutes, and are delivered with submillimeter accuracy to kill cancer and minimize the amount of damage to surrounding tissues and organs.

– The Versa HD machine delivers three-dimensional conformal treatment, intensity-modulated radiation treatment (IMRT), volumetric modulated arc therapy (VMAT), and stereotactic radiation therapy or radiosurgery (SBRT or SRS).  These are all sophisticated techniques found at any major cancer treatment center, but delivered with the convenience of being close to home.

– We use image-guided radiation (IGRT) to verify proper positioning before delivering radiation treatment each day.

– ExacTrac radiosurgery system by Brainlab captures images to ensure optimal alignment before and during your radiation treatment, to allow precise tumor targeting and to avoid other non-target areas of the body.

– Our radiosurgery procedures are often done in conjunction with our neurosurgeons, to provide additional expertise in the localization and precision of your radiation treatment.

Are there other services provided at our clinic location?

Yes.  Blackwell Medical Tower is a large medical practice building, hosting multiple other doctors’ offices.  There is a chemotherapy infusion suite used by medical oncology and gynecologic oncology.  There is also a laboratory on the first floor for patients.

– The Blackwell Medical Tower is a hospital-based clinic, so our doctors provide emergency radiation services for inpatients at Huntsville Hospital needing radiation treatment.
