What technology is at this clinic? 

– At Singing River Cancer Center, we have a CT simulator and a TrueBeam linear accelerator.

– The simulator is a GE large bore CT simulator that coordinates with our Identify System.  Once in your treatment position, it takes high-quality images that allow your doctor and team to plan your treatment with high precision.

– The TrueBeam 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 TrueBeam 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, delivered close to home.

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

– We also use the Identify System to provide additional patient safety and treatment accuracy. Please read more about this system on our blog.

Are there other services provided at our clinic location?

– Yes.  The Singing River Cancer Center is also home to Clearview Cancer Institute and Clearview Diagnostic Imaging.  You can have your labs, scans, chemotherapy, and radiation treatment all performed in the comfort of our new state-of-the-art building.
