The West Suburban Hospital Radiation Oncology Department offers state-of-the-art services and the highest quality of care for its patients. The Radiation Oncology staff at the Center for Cancer Care, located in River Forest, offers compassionate care while striving to meet your physical and emotional needs before, during, and after your radiation treatment. West Suburban Hospital now offers powerful new technology in the field of radiation therapy.
In our ongoing commitment to provide advanced, high-quality care to our patients, West Suburban Hospital's Cancer Center is proud to offer a new development in radiation therapy called intensity-modulated radiation therapy, or IMRT.
IMRT achieves what was once impossible with other radiation therapies: it precisely targets the cancer while substantially reducing exposure to surrounding healthy tissue. Using specialized software and computers, physicians are able to modulate the radiation into pencil-thin beams, adjust the intensity of each beam, and guide the radiation around sensitive areas. The result is fewer side effects, fewer complications, and improved cancer control rates. With its pinpoint accuracy, IMRT also allows for more safety when dealing with delicate areas, such as the prostate, left breast, and brain.
At West Suburban we strive always to bring the latest medical advancements to our patients in the comfort of their own community. This new technology will help us continue our mission to provide excellent, compassionate care. – less – More from ZoomInfo »
