Radiation therapy uses high-energy beams like X-rays to kill cancer cells. At CenterPoint Radiation Oncology, Dr. Morrell employs the most advanced technologies to effectively treat your specific type of cancer.
Depending on your needs, radiation therapy may include:
External beam radiation
During external beam radiation therapy, you lie on a table while a large machine called a linear accelerator moves around you and sends radiation beams to precise areas on your body.
Stereotactic body radiotherapy
Stereotactic body radiotherapy is an incision-free cancer treatment that uses precisely focused radiation beams to destroy cancer. It targets tumors in parts of your body other than the brain, including the lungs.
During stereotactic body radiotherapy, Dr. Morrell uses 3D imaging to accurately deliver high doses of radiation to a specific area. There’s no cutting or traditional surgery involved.
