About half of all cancer cases are treatable with radiation, on its own, or in conjunction with other forms of treatment. The staff at the Mat-Su Valley Comprehensive Cancer Center understand that “radiation” can sound intimidating, but it is one of the safest, most effective methods of treating cancers. It works because dividing cancer cells are more vulnerable to the effects of radiation than normal cells. With TrueBeam treatments, radiation beams can be focused very precisely, helping to effectively treat all types of cancer and minimizing the exposure to surrounding healthy tissue.
TrueBeam is the latest technology in radiotherapy cancer treatment. Radiation is generated with varying intensities and aimed at a tumor from multiple angles to attack cancer cells from the best possible position. The TrueBeam System delivers the lowest possible dose to the surrounding areas, protecting your healthy tissue while still delivering the highest dose to the tumor.
