Patient in Trilogy Machine

Trilogy

Next Generation Radiation Therapy for Cancer
Trilogy can deliver all forms of external-beam radiation therapy – from conventional radiation treatment and intensity modulated radiation therapy (IMRT) to the newest and most advanced techniques, such as image-guided radiotherapy (IGRT) and stereotactic body radiotherapy (SBRT). Learn More.

IMRT

Intensity-Modulated Radiation Therapy
IMRT uses varying beam intensities to send radiation to the tumor site from the most favorable paths. Our radiation oncology experts have helped perfect IMRT by developing Direct Aperture Optimization, an enhanced radiation delivery technique that dramatically cuts treatment time. Learn More.

Gamma Knife
