Radiation Therapy

Sophisticated & safe cancer treatments

West Jefferson Medical Center offers a comprehensive line of care for treatment of malignant and benign tumors. We offer the latest treatment options, including Rapid Arc, Stereotactic Radiosurgery (CyberKnife®) and prostate brachytherapy.

Healthy live tissue remains relatively unaffected and patients experience minimal side effects. The goals of treatment are to decrease the size of a tumor, slow progression, shrink the area that requires surgery (resection) or ablation and provide palliation of symptoms that the patient may be experiencing.

Under the direction of a radiation oncologist, the Radiation Therapy staff is comprised of members of the healthcare profession who function as a care team to provide the best possible patient care. Personnel that provide therapeutic services are appropriately licensed and/or certified.

Diagnostic radiology

Images are captured by Digital (DR) Imaging. Our (DR) Equipment offers Dual-energy chest exams for anyone 50 years and over. Dual-energy subtraction imaging allows better visualization of a variety of entities, including nodules, bone lesions, vascular disease, pleural disease, mediastinal and hilar masses, tracheal and airway abnormalities, complex chest disease and indwelling devices. Dual-energy subtraction chest radiography improves the radiologist’s ability to detect and accurately diagnose a wide variety of chest lesions.

A Picture Archival Communication System (PACS) is available for all exams performed and images can be electronically transmitted to your West Jefferson physician's office for your convenience via the Hospital Web.
