Our Radiation Oncology Clinic offers extensive options for radiation therapy to treat cancers of the prostate, breast, ovaries, brain, liver, pancreas, head and neck, bones, and lungs. Stanford doctors helped create modern radiation therapies such as CyberKnife®, and we continue to advance the field, offering stereotactic and intensity-modulated radiotherapy (SBRT and IMRT), brachytherapy, 3D conformal radiation, and other options. Our care team works closely with you to identify the best therapy for your disease and lifestyle.
The TrueBeam is the newest model of medical linear accelerator, the mechanism that transforms electrons into photons by shooting them at a metal target at nearly the speed of light. The energy from that impact is measured in millions of volts. When the photons, or X-rays, contact cancer cells, the result is meant to be so lethal that the cancer cells will lose their ability to reproduce and will then die.
Radiation Oncologist, prostate cancer expert, Mark Buyyounouski, MD, MS, explains diagnosis and treatment options for prostate cancer.
