Available in Ventura County – 6-D Robotic System for Image-Guided Radiation Therapy & Stereotactic Body Radiotherapy
Introducing Our New 6-D Robotic System
A leader in medical technology, Radiation Oncology Centers of Ventura County offers some of the most advanced cancer treatment technologies available. Now with ExacTrac® for Image-Guided Radiation Therapy (IGRT) & Stereotactic Body Radiotherapy (SBRT), Dr. O’Connor and Dr. Montes can target tumors with sub-millimeter accuracy. Choosing Radiation Oncology Centers of Ventura County means patients receive state-of-the-art technology and compassionate care. This new 6-D Robotic System, currently used at UCLA, is now available for patients in Ventura County.
ExacTrac® Provides Highly Precise Cancer Treatment
Traditionally, small shifts in patient movement or radiation beam alignment could result in damage to healthy tissue surrounding the tumor. Brainlab IGRT technology uses high-resolution X-rays to pinpoint tumors seconds before treatment, allowing doctors to quickly correct and track patient movement throughout the procedure. With this improved precision, ExacTrac® enables Dr. O’Connor and Dr. Montes to deliver higher treatment doses within one millimeter of the tumor, protecting healthy tissue and potentially improving long-term clinical results.
Benefits for Patients
Radiation therapy is a primary form of cancer treatment. Many cancer patients will require radiation therapy during some phase of their cancer care. A treatment team comprised of a radiation oncologist, registered radiation therapists, oncology nurses, a medical physicist and a dosimetrist work together to ensure the most effective treatment for each patient.
During radiation treatment, ExacTrac® allows Dr. O’Connor and Dr. Montes to:
- Pinpoint tumors with sub-millimeter precision.
- Provide additional protection of healthy tissue.
- Adapt immediately to minor movements.
- Deliver higher doses in potentially fewer sessions.
- Help improve the patient’s quality of life.
