The Comprehensive Cancer Center uses the Trilogy© Stereotactic System to treat patients with cancer. Trilogy is the world's premier image-guided system that is capable of delivering all forms of external beam radiation, allowing physicians to pinpoint cancer in the head, neck and body, and use the most effective treatments for each type of cancer.
Trilogy's linear accelerator-Varian's 23EX Clinac-shapes radiation beams to match the shape of the targeted tumor, while Trilogy's On-board imager allows physicians to accurately position patients for treatment and track the tumor during treatment.
Unlike other radiation therapies, Trilogy automatically makes adjustments for movements as the radiation is delivered, so that patients can breathe normally while undergoing treatment. The system eliminates the need to interrupt treatment to adjust the equipment.
Treatment with Trilogy is covered by most health insurance plans. For more information please call 1-866-401-0002.
