Cutting-edge radiation therapy offers patients customized cancer care close to home
Cancer patients at Kingston General Hospital are now benefitting from a new high-tech treatment option. The Cancer Centre of Southeastern Ontario (CCSEO) at KGH has acquired a new state-of-the-art radiation therapy machine that provides specialized care to patients with complex cancers. Purchased with funding from Cancer Care Ontario, the $3-million VarianTrueBeam Linear Accelerator is one of only 14 of its kind in the province. It’s an important addition to KGH’s selection of radiation treatments, as it allows therapists to treat patients with a wider range of radiation beams that enable faster and better-targeted dose delivery for some patients, which can result in fewer radiation treatments. It is also capable of more precise radiation to treat complex tumors.
