Radiation or radiotherapy for prostate cancer treatment has been under the scanner for its probable side effects in some cases. But, at the same time, harmful after-effects of any therapy can be mitigated by the use of technology. However, precision is not the only concern in this field. It also demands faster treatments with minimized risks.
Technological advancements like RapidArc can bring forth a breakthrough in cancer treatments by using robotics in surgery. This machine can produce high-powered X-Rays by rotating and delivering its beams from multiple angles. This latest approach of treatment based on IG-IMRT or Image-Guided Intensity-Modulated Radiation Therapy has enhanced precision to target tumors without harming the surrounding healthy tissues.
Medical treatment centers are realizing the capability of this technology to provide faster healing and higher accuracy. As per a senior official, "We are proud to be the foremost provider of RapidArc in Kansas City. With this machine, we intend to attain our goal of providing high-quality medical care in a timely manner with reasonable costs of treatment. It will instill a new hope for the patients battling cancer for years."
The medical linear accelerator of RapidArc facilitates the patients with IMRT treatments that can be completed in less than 2 minutes as compared to the conventional timing of minimum 10 minutes. It provides sub-millimeter accuracy in radiotherapy. Patients suffering from cancer in the bladder, kidney, prostate, or any other part can take advantage of this technology at Kansas City Urology Care for faster healing.
The functioning of RapidArc is made simple with an on-board imaging system mounted on the machine. This system enables the treatment team to take high-resolution X-ray images of an affected area before commencing the daily treatment.
With the availability of this advanced machine, Kansas City Urology Care has established itself as a pioneer in the field of technology-driven cancer treatment. Its extensive information is accessible on the patient portal of this center.
