Using invisible radiation therapy like a knife
to destroy lung tumors
Lung cancer can be hard to get at without a patient having to undergo difficult surgery. But new, highly advanced technology for sending multiple beams of radiation through one targeted point, can reach and destroy lung tumors far less invasively.
For patients. this means the cancer team uses invisible energy to kill tumors with no incisions and no (or minimal) side effects of treatment. Stereotactic radiosurgery targets cancer cells while maximally sparing surrounding tissue.
Fewer treatments, no surgery, and precise targetting of even the smallest lung cancers.
The advanced technology in Aria's Trilogy system also compensates for patient breathing during care. Based on CT's taken before treatment, the radiation therapy machine pulses and adjusts to patient respiration, so that patients can breathe comfortably while on the treatment table.
Radiosurgery is especially applicable to early-stage, peripheral (non-small cell) lung cancer. Aria’s university-faculty radiation oncologists can evaluate each individual to determine if lung radiosurgery is right for him or her.
