Radiation therapy treats cancer using beams of intense energy to damage cancer cells and stop them from growing and dividing.
For 40 years, Inspira has provided patients with state-of-the-art radiation therapy.
Our Approach to Radiation Therapy
Our radiation oncology team is made up of board-certified radiation oncologists, registered radiation therapists, dosimetrists and nationally certified oncology nurses. We also have board-certified medical physicists on-site to supervise treatment safety and accuracy. Our physicists perform continuous equipment tests to assure the highest quality radiation treatments possible.
Types of Radiation Therapy
Image-Guided Radiation Technology
Image-guided radiation technology (IGRT) improves the accuracy of radiation therapy. During planning and treatment, computed tomography is used to take 3D images. Comparing these images allows our team to determine the latest organ position and to adjust the radiation field during treatment.
Intensity-Modulated Radiation Therapy
Intensity-modulated radiation therapy (IMRT) is a high-precision radiation targeting system that enables our team to deliver radiation to a tumor in three dimensions with a single powerful beam composed of hundreds of smaller beams. The smaller beams bypass healthy tissue, avoiding damage, until they meet in a single powerful beam that eradicates the tumor.
Stereotactic Radiosurgery and Stereotactic Body Radiotherapy
Despite their names, stereotactic radiosurgery (SRS) and stereotactic body radiotherapy (SBRT) are non-surgical procedures that deliver precisely targeted radiation at much higher doses in only a single or few treatments, as compared to traditional radiation therapy. SBRT is used for body treatments and SRS is used for brain treatments. These treatments are only possible due to the development of highly advanced radiation technologies that permit maximum dose delivery within the target while minimizing dose to the surrounding healthy tissue.
Radiation therapy treatments at Inspira also include:
- Radiation Consultation Services
- External Beam Radiation Therapy (EBRT)
- High Dose Radiation (HDR)
- Radioactive Prostate Seed Implants
- Radiopharmaceutical Therapy
- Thyroid Ablation
- Palliative Radiation
- Lifetime Patient Follow-Up
Why Choose Inspira for Radiation Therapy
We combine cutting-edge medical technology with a human touch, allowing us to provide expert care. Our board-certified and fellowship-trained oncology physicians are well-versed in the latest cancer treatments and are equipped with advanced technologies that can increase your chances for a successful recovery. We also understand that navigating the ups and downs of life with cancer can be overwhelming, which is why we provide a built-in support system of social workers, counselors, coordinators and registered dieticians so you and your family don’t have to walk the path to recovery alone.
Inspira’s oncology physicians take a multi-faceted approach to detecting, diagnosing and treating cancer by looking at your condition from a holistic perspective. Whether you’re just beginning treatment or are a cancer-free survivor, we take everything—genetics, lifestyle habits and other risk factors—into account when designing your care plan. By treating the whole person rather than just the disease itself, we’re able to offer a more targeted, personalized experience.
Inspira participates in clinical trials to explore new ways to prevent, detect or treat cancer. Clinical trials can also focus on other aspects of care, such as improving the quality of life for people with cancer. Participants help others and may also benefit from receiving the newest treatment along with additional care and attention from the clinical trial staff.
