Today's advances in digital imaging and radiation oncology systems are helping to provide oncologists with the images needed to detect and treat cancer earlier and more accurately.
Our patients receive state-of-the-art therapy, using the most sophisticated diagnostic and radiation oncology systems in the field of cancer treatment today.
CT has become the standard for advanced therapy simulation and is the basis for precision mapping of cancer tumors for radiation treatments, including IGRT, inverse therapy planning and radiosurgery.
The ACQSIM, used at Mount Nittany Medical Center, is the industry's most advanced 3D CT simulation system, giving the healthcare team the most accurate, precise visualization tools to plan radiation therapy.
The latest detection technique for breast cancer and melanoma, the sentinel lymph node biopsy procedure requires the removal of only one sentinel node to determine if the disease has spread, often eliminating the need to remove additional, auxiliary lymph nodes. Breast care patients usually experience fewer complications and less pain with this innovative technique.
