Advances in Early Diagnosis and Treatment of Cancer July 17, 2007
Wide Bore Computed Tomography –Provides highly detailed imaging that serves as a roadmap for radiation therapy treatment
Wide Bore Computed Tomography –Doctors can see exactly where a tumor is located
Wide Bore Computed Tomography – Respiratory Gating readily accounts for any tumor motion related to breathing or organ movement
Wide Bore Computed Tomography Respiratory Gating
Wide Bore Computed Tomography Works with IMRT (Intensity Modulated Radiation Therapy) to focus on eradicating cancerous tissue.
High Dose Rate Brachytherapy –Offers patients an innovative form of internal radiation –Using catheters, radiation is placed inside a tumor
High Dose Rate Brachytherapy –Maximum radiation dose is delivered where patient needs it most in the shortest amount of time
PET/CT –Next generation of Positron Emission Tomography and Computed Tomography integrates two advanced imaging technologies
PET/CT –This most advanced system of its kind helps doctors detect disease in its early stages and monitor the progress of a patient’s treatment.
PET/CT –Integrated anatomical and metabolic images assist doctors in determining whether a suspicious growth is cancerous or benign.
Computer Aided Detection Lung X-ray –FDA-approved CAD system is used with all chest x-rays performed at St. Mary on patients age 30 and older
Computer Aided Detection Lung X-ray –CAD is a powerful tool that assist radiologists in finding hard-to-detect early-stage lung cancer
Coming late 2007 –Image Guided Radiation Therapy Couples the most advanced IMRT with integrated real-time CT for advanced planning and delivery of radiation therapy
Radiologic Imaging Defines the local extent of a tumor Can be used to stage malignant disease Aids in the diagnosis Monitoring tumor changes after treatment.
