Cancer

Our new TrueBeam STx radiosurgery

Patient wears GoPro helmet camera to share his  radiation treatment experience with others

We're proud to offer patients innovative cancer treatment with Colorado's first TrueBeam STx.

The TrueBeam STx can be used to treat virtually any type of cancer in any location on the body. The ultra-precise technology can treat more complex and more advanced cancers than older linear accelerator technologies.

A complex radiosurgery that typically takes 30 to 60 minutes can be completed in just 5 to 20 minutes with the TrueBeam STx.

The TrueBeam STx pinpoints radiation beam delivery
with sub-millimeter accuracy, making it possible to
radiate brain and other complex tumors without
destroying nearby healthy tissue.

The TrueBeam STx was recently installed at PVHS' Harmony Campus in Fort Collins as part of a $7.1
million expansion of its radiation oncology department.
Dr. Petit, our medical director, has experience treating patients with the TrueBeam STx technology through his training in the Harvard Radiation Oncology Program, as well as several years leading a busy radiosurgery
program at the large radiation oncology center in the Washington DC area.
