- Chemotherapy/Drug-based treatment options
- Radiation Therapy including SBRT (Stereotactic Body Radiotherapy), Image Guided Radiotherapy (IGRT) and IMRT (Intensity Modulated Radiation Therapy)
- Brachytherapy, a procedure that involves the internal placement of radiotherapy sources that give off radiation targeting the tumor from the inside of the body
- MAMMOSITE® therapy for breast cancer, which reduces treatment time from six weeks to five days using advanced brachytherapy treatment.
- ACCULOC® Technology for Prostate Cancer, a radiation procedure that uses gold seed markers offering a less invasive approach to traditional treatment options.
- Immunotherapy, a treatment that uses the patient’s immune system to fight the cancer.
- Hematology (the treatment of blood disorders)
