Treatment and Services
We provide the most advanced treatments for our patients as well as support services and education.
Our support programs and resources are designed to help patients and families before, during and after cancer treatment.
Before treatment can begin, a CT scan is taken of the area on your body to be treated with radiation.
We use the latest technologies to deliver higher doses of radiation with increased accuracy enabling faster treatments for patients.
At Winship, we offer high dose rate and low dose rate brachytherapy.
For patients diagnosed with a brain tumor, Gamma Knife radiosurgery is an alternative to traditional surgery.
Proton beam radiation therapy is the next generation of radiation oncology treatment soon to be available to our patients.
In most cases, only a single radiation treatment is required.
Stereotactic body radiation therapy is commonly used to treat small, early-stage lung tumors.
This therapy is used to prepare a patient for bone marrow transplant.
This therapy is used to irradiate the patient's entire skin surface in some diseases such as cutaneous T-cell lymphoma.
