TomoTherapy® treatment system uses its unique CT scanner designed to deliver radiation continuously from all angles around the patient, delivering precise beams that conform to tumors and minimize healthy tissue damage.
Brachytherapy is the practice of treating cancer by placing radioactive source(s) directly into the cancer tissue and delivering a precise dose of radiation, thus killing the cancer cells. Brachytherapy gives a high radiation dose while avoiding nearby normal tissue.
Our patient navigators are trained health care workers that are the first point of contact for new patients and referring physicians. They assist with the following services:
- Coordinate appointments with all health care involve
- Assist with insurance and/or financial concerns and help with paperwork
- Follow up with lab and test results
- Prepare patient charts and results for multi-disciplinary tumor board
- Meet with patients face-to-face to guide them through their process
- Follow-up services, referrals and/or support groups
Patient navigation is individualized assistance offered to patients, families, and caregivers to help overcome healthcare system barriers and facilitate timely access to quality healthcare from pre-diagnosis through all phases of the cancer experience. Several studies show that navigation services increase participation in cancer screening and adherence to follow-up care.
