Cleveland Clinic's Radiotherapy Specialists care for more patients than any other cancer center in Ohio. Our multidisciplinary approach to cancer care coupled with the use of cutting edge technologies, dedication to research and education, and strong focus on patient care provide better outcomes and experiences for our patients.
Hyperthermia increases tumor temperature to stimulate blood flow, increasing oxygenation and renders tumor cells more sensitive to radiation.
Image guided radiation therapy (IGRT) involves the use of imaging technology such as X-ray, ultrasound, or optical imaging to direct the delivery of radiation.
Intensity Modulated Radiation Therapy (IMRT) is the practice of delivering multiple beams of radiation to separate tumor sites in order to more effectively treat large tumor areas.
The Intrabeam Intraoperative Radiation Therapy (IORT) device delivers low energy, high dose radiation directly to the tumor bed in the operating room.
Mobetron is the world's first mobile, self-shielded electron linear accelerator that delivers Intraoperative Electron Radiotherapy (IOERT).
Novalis Tx radiosurgery accurately shapes the radiation beam to the area to be treated and uses imaging guidance and other methods to target the tissue or tumor.
Prone Breast treatment substantially limits the radiation dose that reaches the heart, lung, and skin.
The plaque is positioned on the surface of the eyeball directly over the tumor inside the eye delivering a high dose of radiation.
Radiolabeled Antibody Therapy is injected into the circulation and allowed to localize simultaneously in many different sites of disease involvement.
Highly-concentrated doses of radiation delivered directly to tumors, without damaging healthy cells - in two minutes.
TheraSphere consists of millions of radioactive microscopic glass spheres, which are infused into the arteries that feed liver tumors.
Total Body Irradiation is often given in the context of a bone marrow transplant, and in the past it has generally involved very high doses of radiation given over a period of days.
