Radiation Therapy for Prostate Cancer

The physicians of Genesis have access to a wide variety of treatment options for prostate cancer, including radiation therapy. 

Therapeutic options in radiation oncology include IGRT/IMRT (Image Guided Radiation Therapy and Intensity Modulated Radiation Therapy), Seed Brachytherapy (radioactive seed implant), HDR Brachytherapy (High Dose Rate Brachytherapy), and CyberKnife Radiosurgery.

Precision and accuracy matter when it comes to radiation treatment for prostate cancer, that’s why Genesis Healthcare offers Calypso GPS for the Body – to keep radiation focused to hit the tumor, not surrounding healthy tissue.

Your radiation oncologist can determine the best therapeutic option for you, based on the nature of the tumor and physical exam.
