In 2019, Stereotactic Radiation Therapy arrived in Southwest Oklahoma and is available exclusively at the Cancer Centers of Southwest Oklahoma. This form of radiation therapy allows the radiation oncologist to more precisely focus beams of radiation to destroy certain types of tumors. It may also be referred to as Radiosurgery.
Advantages of Stereotactic Radiation Therapy (SRT) include the ability to deliver dosages of radiation in shorter time periods which can allow treatments to be completed in days rather than weeks. SRT also provides the ability to deliver higher doses to the tumor areas while allowing delivery of much lower doses to the surrounding normal tissue. Working in conjunction with the Image-Guided (IGRT) or Surface-Guided (SGRT) aspects of our new accelerator, we can deliver an extremely accurate and highly specialized dose.
