3D conformal radiation therapy is a technique that allows doctors to sculpt radiation beams to the shape of a tumor. This form of radiation therapy is used to treat many types of cancer.
Stem cell transplant is the replacement of damaged bone marrow cells with healthy cells (stem cells). Stem cells are immature cells produced in the bone marrow that make more stem cells, red blood cells, white blood cells, and platelets. Stem cells used for transplants can be taken from bone marrow, from the bloodstream or from umbilical cord blood.
Brachytherapy is a radiation technique that places radioactive material inside the body very close to the tumor by using a radioactive substance sealed in needles, seeds, wires or catheters.
Brain cancer radiation therapy is used to destroy brain tumor cells and relieve symptoms caused by tumors. This treatment can be used before surgery to shrink a tumor, after surgery to destroy remaining cancer cells or for tumors that are inoperable.
Breast cancer radiation therapy is used to destroy breast tumor cells and relieve symptoms caused by tumors. This treatment can be used before surgery to shrink a tumor, after surgery to destroy remaining cancer cells or for tumors that are inoperable.
Chemotherapy (chemo) refers to the use of drugs, known as chemotherapeutic agents, to kill or slow the growth of rapidly multiplying cancer cells. Chemotherapy drugs are most commonly given intravenously (through an IV) or orally (through the mouth), but they can be given in other ways.
Gamma Knife Icon radiosurgery is a stereotactic radiosurgery method that delivers high doses of radiation to a targeted area without damaging the surrounding healthy tissue. It can be used for both adults and children who have small to medium-sized brain tumors; blood vessel abnormalities, such as arteriovenous malformations (AVMs); and a range of neurological conditions including trigeminal neuralgia, Parkinson’s disease and epilepsy.
Hormones help some types of cancer cells to grow, such as breast cancer and prostate cancer. In other cases, hormones can kill cancer cells, make cancer cells grow more slowly or stop them from growing. Hormone therapy as a cancer treatment may involve taking medications that interfere with the activity of the hormone or stop the production of the hormones. Hormone therapy may involve surgically removing a gland that is producing the hormones.
Image-guided radiation therapy (IGRT) uses X-ray, cone-beam CT scanning, electromagnetic tracking, optical surface tracking or ultrasound imaging during treatments to locate and focus radiation beams precisely at the tumors.
Immunotherapy (also called biologic therapy, biological response modifier therapy, or biotherapy) uses the body's immune system to fight cancer. The cells, antibodies and organs of the immune system work to protect and defend the body against foreign invaders, such as bacteria or viruses.
