TrueBeam® Radiation Technology
The Latest Radiation Innovation in the Hands of the Experts at AdventHealth.
AdventHealth is proud to offer our community the benefits of the TrueBeam® Linear Accelerator, an advanced cancer-fighting technology tool, in the hands of our radiation oncology experts. TrueBeam® is the most accurate therapy available today and recognized as one of the clinically best ways to treat cancers.
Pinpoint Accuracy. Impressive Results.
The TrueBeamTM supports Intensity Modulated Radiation Therapy (IMRT) techniques that allow physicians to design each radiation beam to the exact shape of the tumor, through the movement of more than 100 individual computer-controlled shields built into the machine. The accelerator can even take X-rays or CT scan images to determine the precise location of the tumor to facilitate last-second adjustments before delivering the treatment, an important consideration when treating tumors such as prostate and lung cancers that shift their position within the body and also for healthy organ and tissue sparing.
Respiratory gating is an important feature of the TrueBeamTM , allowing the machine to switch the beam off and on in rhythm with a patient’s respiration, so that tumors in the chest and abdomen do not move out of the beam’s path when the patient takes a breath. The TrueBeamTM treats a wide variety of cancers, including tumors of the breast, brain, colon, lung, pancreas, head and neck, and even skin, allowing our patients to feel at ease when it comes to having accurate outcomes.
Complementary Technology Offers Complete Radiation Therapy Solutions.
The TrueBeam® linear accelerator is complemented by additional cancer fighting technology. Our CT simulator and PET/CT simulator allow the team to use multiple imaging techniques to localize tumor targets with state-of-the-art precision to enhance the accuracy of radiation treatment planning.
