Prostate Cancer Radiation Therapy
If you have decided radiation therapy is your best prostate cancer treatment option, it is important to completely understand the procedure. Your organs naturally move during radiation treatment and your doctor cannot predict which way or how much your organs will move. When your organs move during radiation therapy delivery, the tumor may not get the right amount of radiation. Other nearby organs may receive radiation that is not meant for them during the radiation treatment.
Dr. Mark Allen is skillfully trained in the area of radiation therapy and offers the Calypso 4D Radiation System to perform highly accurate radiation therapy for his patients. It is a unique system designed to prepare you for prostate cancer radiation treatment. The Calypso System uses radio-frequency waves which allow very accurate alignment of your prostate before each treatment session. It can also be used to monitor the position of the prostate at all times during your radiation treatment delivery.
