Advanced radiation therapy
Radiation therapy is a common treatment for cancer: more than half of all cancer patients receive some type of radiation treatment. Our partner in radiation oncology, Virginia Mason Medical Center, is a pioneer in the use of targeted radiation therapy. This treatment results in a shorter course of treatment and less damage to surrounding healthy tissue.
We specialize in several innovative approaches, including:
- Brachytherapy: a radioactive implant to target cancer tumors
- Image-guided radiation therapy: 3D images to guide radiation treatment, sparing nearby healthy tissue
- Intensity-modulated radiation therapy: small, controlled beams to precisely target tumors
- Interventional radiology: images to guide minimally invasive surgery to target cancer tumors
The Radiation Oncology Center at St. Francis is the only private radiation oncology program — and one of just two in Washington — to receive national accreditation from the American College of Radiology. This recognition means you can expect the highest standards in cancer care. Our Radiation Oncology Center also offers an indoor meditation room and education center.
At St. Francis, we participate in research and clinical trials and are actively seeking patients to join them. The benefits of joining a clinical trial include:
- Gaining access to leading-edge treatments that are not yet widely available
- Helping further medical science, which will benefit future cancer patients
- Participating in research studies for cancer prevention, cancer control and quality of life
Ask your provider for more information about clinical trials and how to access one that is right for you.
