The McLaren Proton Therapy Center is a service of the McLaren Cancer Institute, which provides a full complement of comprehensive treatment options for cancer patients. Along with proton therapy, other treatment modalities include:
- TrueBeam- real-time imaging and radiation treatment system that treats moving tumors with unprecedented speed and accuracy. TrueBeam incorporates numerous technical innovations that synchronize imaging, patient positioning, motion management, and treatment delivery during radiotherapy or radiosurgery.
- IMRT- Intensity Modulated Radiation Therapy (IMRT) delivers radiation via small beamlets varying in intensity and computed by an advanced inverse planning system which minimizes damage to healthy tissue.
- Brachytherapy- also known as internal radiation, involves placing radioactive materials into a tumor or its surrounding tissue.
- Medical Oncology- services include leading-edge treatments such as biologic therapy, chemotherapy, targeted therapy, advanced clinical trails, genetic counseling and IV therapy.
