Radiation Oncology Treatments

Patients have access to the most advanced radiation oncology treatment options close to home including New Jersey’s only hospital-based proton therapy program.

Radiation Oncology Treatment

Brachytherapy

Available in high-dose rate and low-dose rate, brachytherapy places a radioactive source directly into or next to a tumor to emit the radiation to a very precise target. Several types of brachytherapy are available including intracavitary brachytherapy for gynecologic, lung and esophageal tumors, ocular brachytherapy, interstitial brachytherapy for head and neck tumors, extremity soft tissue sarcomas, breast, prostate and gynecologic tumors, and surface brachytherapy for nonmelanomatous skin cancer.

CyberKnife®

Cyberknife delivers radiation therapy precisely to a focused area, in less time and over fewer treatments when compared to traditional radiation therapy. Used primarily to treat cancers of the head and neck, brain, prostate, spine, liver, and lung, as well as AVM, neuralgia, menignioms, and neuromas.

Gamma Knife™ Radiosurgery

Gamma Knife Radiosurgery uses multiple beams of radiation focused with extreme accuracy on the tumor or area to be treated. Used primarily to treat tumors and other abnormalities of the brain.

Intensity Modulated Radiation Therapy (IMRT)
& Image Guided Radiation Therapy (IGRT)

IMRT and IGRT utilize advanced imaging techniques and computerized radiation delivery techniques that provide high-resolution, three-dimensional imaging to pinpoint tumor sites while protecting healthy surrounding tissue. Both techniques are used to treat a number of different cancers such as brain tumors, lung cancer, and prostate cancer.

Proton Beam Therapy

Proton Beam Therapy targets tumors with pinpoint accuracy protecting the surrounding tissue and organs. Proton beams have the unique property of stopping at a certain tissue depth allowing radiation to be directed to a specific location within the tumor. Used primarily to treat a broad variety of tumors including brain cancer, head and neck cancers, pediatric cancer, lymphomas, breast cancer, prostate cancer, lung cancer, gastrointestinal tumors, as well as all types of recurrent cancers previously treated with radiation.

Radioembolization or Selective Internal Radiation Therapy (SIRT)

SIRT is used to improve progression free survival in patients when surgery is not an option. Used primarily to treat inoperable liver tumors and metastatic colon cancer which have spread to the liver.

Stereotactic Body Radiation Therapy (SBRT)

SBRT is a highly precise treatment technique utilized to destroy tumors by delivering high-dose radiation to small, well-defined tumors, while limiting damage to healthy tissue. SBRT is delivered using advanced linear accelerator technology with image guided treatment capabilities. This technique is primarily used to treat prostate cancer, early-stage lung cancer, pancreatic cancer, and liver cancer, as well as oligometastatic disease/progression including lesions in the spine, lung, liver, and other sites.

Stereotactic Radiosurgery (SRS)

SRS uses a high-dose, tightly focused radiation beam localized to the brain for both benign and malignant tumors performed in one to five sessions. Used primarily to treat brain tumors, trigeminal meuralgia, acoustic neuroma and atriovenous malformation.
