The Department of Radiation Oncology is a key part of cancer treatment services at Poudre Valley Cancer Network.
Radiation treatments use cutting-edge technology to treat cancer using machines called linear accelerators. Our newest machine and the first in Colorado, the TrueBeam STx, offers treatment that has pinpoint accuracy.
This new machine allows our treatment team to not only continue to offer high quality care and treatment but improve upon this treatment. (Watch a recent patient's video of his actual treatment.)
A linear accelerator delivers ionizing radiation beams to the body. Ionizing radiation is made of high energy waves that damage cancer cells and destroy their ability to grow. Targeted radiation shrinks tumors of all shapes and sizes. The treatment is designed to get rid of the cancer without harming nearby healthy tissue.
Under the leadership of Joshua Petit, MD, our team provides innovative cancer care options with a focus on patient comfort and shared treatment goals.
