Pleasant is the latest in a series of technology upgrades made across MUSC Health’s radiation oncology program over the past few months. A similar TrueBeam system was installed at the main location in downtown Charleston in August 2014, while a major upgrade of the Gamma Knife Center’s stereotactic radiosurgery technology was completed in September 2014. The new Gamma Knife system provides a nonsurgical method of treating tumors and abnormalities in the head and neck in a one-time, single day treatment.“As a leading cancer treatment provider and research institution in the region, our goal is to stay at the forefront of cancer care,” said Jennifer Harper, M.D., MUSC associate professor and radiation oncologist. “The new TrueBeam system in Mt. Pleasant reflects our commitment to ensure patients are treated with the most advanced technology supported by clinical research and provides another access point for patients and their families to get expertise from MUSC physicians in a community location.”For more information: www.hcc.musc.edu FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 News | Radiation Therapy | August 15, 2019 First Patient Enrolled in World’s Largest Brain Cancer Clinical Trial Henry Ford Cancer Institute is first-in-the-world to enroll a glioblastoma patient in the GBM AGILE Trial (Adaptive… read more News | Patient Positioning Radiation Therapy | August 07, 2019 Qfix kVue One Proton Couch Top Validated by Mevion Medical Systems Qfix and Mevion Medical Systems announced that a special version of the kVue One Proton couch top is now both validated… read more Feature | August 05, 2019 | Dave Fornell, Editor Most Popular Radiology and Radiotherapy Topics in July 2019 August 5, 2019 — Here is the list of the most popular content on the Imaging Technology New (ITN) magazine website fr read more News | Brachytherapy Systems | August 14, 2019 Efficacy of Isoray’s Cesium Blu Showcased in Recent Studies August 14, 2019 — Isoray announced a trio of studies recently reported at scientific meetings and published in medica read more The top piece of content in July was a video interview explaining how Princess Margaret Cancer Center is using machine learning to create automated treatment plans.
