New Radiation Oncology Clinic at BMC Cancer Center brings the most advanced technology, with highest precision and faster treatment for patients
A state-of-the art radiation oncology clinic is housed at the BMC Cancer Center, featuring the most advanced technology in the region – or anywhere – that achieves highly precise, quicker-than-ever delivery of radiation treatment to cancer patients who need this therapy.
The clinic includes two high-speed linear accelerators with robotic components which allow the rapid creation of complex treatment plans and customized dose distributions, and which also maximize the delivery of radiation to cancerous tissue while minimizing the effects on surrounding, healthy tissue.
Among other technologies used are CT, MRI, PET, x-rays, ultrasound, digital mammography and nuclear medicine. Electromagnetic Guidance System provides access to previously difficult-to-reach lung lesions. This system also improves diagnosis and management of lung cancer.
Pathologists provide cancer diagnoses using the latest tissue analysis techniques, enhanced by a specialized molecular program. Your personalized report enables oncologists to choose effective treatments for you. The pathology group also manages BMC’s blood supply, safely fulfilling transfusion requirements from our own community, rather than relying on outside blood centers.
daVinci Surgical System
Our minimally-invasive daVinci surgical system uses surgeon-controlled robotic technology to achieve smaller, precise incisions, less blood loss and shorter hospital stays resulting in faster recovery. This system is enabling better outcomes in thoracic, gynecological, prostate and urological surgeries.
