Advanced Cancer Treatment
At Kettering Cancer Care, we provide the most advanced patient-centered care in an environment that is focused on healing the whole patient - body, mind and spirit. Our highly skilled cancer team is equipped with cutting edge technology to provide a personalized treatment plan for every patient.
With advanced radiation technology, our radiation oncologists have the ability to provide precise and accurate treatment for a wide range of cancers.
Versa HD leverages the latest technology advances to offer sophisticated approaches to traditionally challenging cancer cases.
Versa HD can conform to a tumor's size, shape and volume. This allows us to treat complex cancers that require extreme targeting accuracy and enables us to use a higher dose that can improve treatment effectiveness, while protecting your body.
When we say shorter treatment times, we mean as short as just a few minutes. When compared to Cyberknife, Medical Director of Radiation Oncology, E. Ronald Hale, MD, MPH, says, "It can do everything the Cyberknife can do with one important difference. Where Cyberknife will do that in approximately one and half hours, our machine can do that in about a minute and half."
The Versa system is extremely versatile and can deliver a wide spectrum of treatment techniques to treat a variety of cancers including medically inoperable lung cancer, liver, colon, prostate, and breast cancer.
Treatment techniques include:
- Conventional radiotherapy
- Stereotactic radiosurgery (SRS)
- Stereotactic radiotherapy (SRT)
- Volumetric-modulated arc therapy (VMAT)
Kettering Medical Center was the first hospital in North America to treat patients with the Elekta Versa HD
