About Staten Island Radiation Oncology
Welcome to our website! We hope you will find the information here helpful, and that it will answer some of your questions about our facility.
We treat most body site cancers with advanced technology that minimizes radiation exposure to nearby, uninvolved structures. This allows more precise delivery of high radiation doses to kill the cancer for better outcomes with increased patient safety. Intensity Modulated Radiation Therapy (IMRT) allows our physicians to “sculpt” the treatment to conform to certain cancers. With RapidArc, the treatment time is just a very few minutes, so that involuntary motion on the treatment table is reduced. We have On Board Imaging (OBI) as well as Cone Beam CT Scanning (CBCT) two forms of IGRT (Image Guided Radiation Therapy) that we use daily before each treatment delivery. This ensures daily treatment accuracy, refining the exact area to be treated every time. In this way, impact on daily life is kept to a bare minimum, while the cancer is treated for very best results possible with radiation both short and long term.
We treat most cancers including breast, prostate, lung, head and neck, stomach, rectum, gynecologic sites, brain, and some lymphomas, bone, colon and skin cancers. Radioactive
seed implants for prostate cancer are also available here.
