A wide variety of imaging capabilities at The Regional Cancer Center contribute to the diagnosis of cancer and the monitoring of treatment progress. A variety of machines and techniques allow doctors to look at the structures and activities inside the body. The technology used depends on the patient’s symptoms and part of the body being examined. X-rays, Computed Tomography (CT), and Positron Emission Tomography (PET), and combined PET/CT scans are all available at The RCC.
Radiation therapy can be used to treat a large number of primary tumors, often with chemotherapy, and is also used for pain control in end stage disease. State-of-the art technology at The RCC includes the Varian Trilogy Radiation Therapy System. All radiation equipment at The Regional Cancer Center is monitored daily by medical physicists to ensure technical accuracy and safety.
