Triology Linear Accelerator

A major advancement in the fight against cancer.

Image guided radiation therapy treatment allows the delivery of high doses of radiation to precisely targeted areas.  This advanced technology allows the radiation to destroy cancer in the head, body, or neck while sparing the surrounding healthy tissue.

Never before have doctors had the ability to pinpoint tumors as small as one millimeter or target larger tumors in sensitive areas that in the past would otherwise be untreatable.  The Trilogy System means we can now treat a variety of cancers earlier and advanced cancers more exactly. 

Advantages of Triology image-guided radiation therapy

Precise targeting of cancer
By delivering pure energy beams from different angles, a tumor is targeted more exactly.  This allows smaller, difficult to reach and inoperable tumors to be destroyed. 

Faster treatments
Compared to traditional linear accelerators the Triology System procedures are approximately 60% faster.

The Trilogy System requires no surgery and can be performed as an outpatient procedure allowing you to return home shortly after treatment. 

Virtually pain free/faster recovery time
This non-invasive technique does not require the recovery time of traditional surgery and results in considerably less side effects. 

Higher doses
Due to the exacting nature of the targeting, much higher doses of radiation can be directed at the cancer without risk to the surrounding healthy issue. 

As few as one treatment required
Thanks to exact targeting and higher doses per procedure, less treatment sessions are needed to kill cancer.  Often times, a single treatment is all it takes. 

Options for cancers that can't be surgically removed
Cancers in locations, like the brain, that are too dangerous to be removed by traditional surgical methods may be successfully treated with the Trilogy System. 

Option for patients unable to undergo surgery
For people who are weakened, of advanced age or for other reason are not candidates for surgery may be treated with this non-invasive technology.
