St. Joseph Cancer Centers
Today, there are more options than ever before to diagnose and treat cancer, especially in its earliest stages.
St. Joseph Cancer Centers are committed to bringing advanced treatment options and hope to patients and their families who have been given a cancer diagnosis. We work with a team of physicians, nurses and staff to offer the latest technologies and treatments. We provide these state-of-the-art services to patients in two convenient freestanding outpatient facilities, as well as in our main downtown campus.
As passionate as we are about our cancer fighting technologies, we know that treatment is only part of the equation. The rest lies in human kindness—trust, compassion and care. It is our mission to excel at all, giving you the best chance to get back to a happy, healthy life.
Common Cancers Treated, but not limited to are:
- Head & Neck
- Positron Emission Mammography (PEM)
- High Dose Rate (HDR) Brachytherapy
- Intensity-Modulated Radiation Therapy (IMRT)
- Image-Guided Radiation Therapy (IGRT)
- Stereotactic Body Radiation Therapy (SBRT)
- Electron Beam Radiation Therapy
Intensity-Modulated Radiation Therapy (IMRT) and Image-Guided Radiation Therapy (IGRT)—Varian’s Clinac iX Linear Accelerator equipped with the On-Board Imager® kV imaging system (OBI).
IMRT allows physicians to modulate the radiation dose with highly accurate, three dimensional detail, according to the shape, size and location of the tumor. IGRT provides up-to-the-minute images, tracks tumor movement during and between treatments, and even compensates for respiration so that tumors can be treated with submillimeter accuracy. Used alone or together, these therapies allow higher doses of radiation to be delivered with greater precision and accuracy, without destroying surrounding, healthy tissue.
Treatments are faster and more comfortable, and often yield in better outcomes.
