ADVANCED RADIATION TECHNOLOGY

New Jersey Urology Cancer Treatment Centers utilize the RapidArc™ Radiotherapy system. The RapidArc™ system uses new technology that directs an exact dosage of radiation with unsurpassed precision, delivering treatments at up to eight times the speed of conventional radiation systems. The average treatment is over in less than two minutes.

Although RapidArc™ radiation therapy is extremely effective against some cancers, different conditions may require different approaches. Your care team will determine if the RapidArc™ system is the right answer for you.

Behind the Beam: The Science of Radiotherapy

The principle behind radiation therapy is that while cancer cells reproduce more quickly than healthy cells, cancer cells cannot easily repair themselves, but healthy cells can. Therefore, by directing a concentrated beam of radiation at an afflicted area, we can stop the growth of cancer while minimizing harm to healthy tissue.

The keys to effective radiation treatment are:

  • Having a comprehensive radiation plan designed by an experienced physician.
  • Precisely targeting the cancerous tissue.
  • Keeping treatments brief and frequent to minimize healthy tissue damage.
  • Maintaining the precision of your instruments.

The RapidArc™ system represents a significant improvement over conventional radiotherapy systems in terms of precise targeting, exact dosing, and speed of treatment. It is also an “external beam” treatment, which is the least intrusive therapy option for treating cancer.

Minimizing Side Effects of Radiation Therapy for Prostate Cancer

SpaceOAR hydrogel is an option for men who undergo radiation treatment for prostate cancer. It acts as a spacer providing space between the rectum and the prostate, making it much less likely that the rectum is exposed to radiation. It is injected into place prior to the start of radiation treatment. Patients may be awake or asleep under general anesthesia for the procedure. SpaceOAR hydrogel is minimally invasive, remains stable during radiation therapy and then is gradually absorbed by the body after radiation therapy has been completed.
