Technology

Our advanced diagnostic and treatment technologies include:

  • digital mammography
  • PET/CT imaging
  • stereotactic breast biopsy
  • minimally invasive surgical and robotic techniques

We offer the da Vinci Surgical System, which requires smaller and fewer incisions than standard surgery and allows patients to return to their daily routines more quickly and with less pain.

McGlinn Cancer Institute for Radiosurgery has also upgraded its Trilogy™ Radiation Therapy System with both RapidArc®  and Exac-Trac®. This combination not only improves accuracy, but substantially reduces treatment times, making stereotactic radiation treatments faster than those of CyberKnife. Clinicians can now define the shape of the cancer and target even the most complex tumors with a treatment plan customized for each individual patient.

We bring together experts from different disciplines to analyze your case and make recommendations for treatment that are best for you. Your caring and committed team includes highly skilled, board-certified surgeons and oncologists, as well as Physician Assistants, Nurse Practitioners, Certified oncology nurses, and other medical professionals.
