Radiation Therapy Delivery System Options

Linear Accelerators

Huntington Radiation Oncology has three linear accelerators. We have a Varian 600C for our inpatient care as needed for emergent radiation therapy. Our outpatient facility has 2 Elekta linear accelerators.

3-D Conformal Radiation Therapy: Whole Breast or Partial Breast

Data from a CT scan with the patient in the treatment position is converted into a treatment plan that allows us to customize your treatment based on our individual anatomy.

Hypofractionated Radiation Therapy: Whole Breast or Partial Breast

For selected early-stage breast cancer patients after lumpectomy, the course of radiation therapy can be shortened. The standard course of therapy is 5-6 weeks. Hypofractionated radiation can be delivered in 3-4 weeks with equal control rates and excellent cosmetic results. Click HERE to learn more about the potential side effects of whole breast radiation.

Breast Brachytherapy

Accelerated partial breast irradiation (APBI) is an option for selected patients. A device is placed in the lumpectomy site and radiation is delivered using a high dose rate radiation source. Treatments are twice daily for five days of treatment. Our cancer center is a “Center of Excellence” for breast brachytherapy using the SAVI catheter device.
