TrueBeam™: State-of-the-art radiation therapy for cancer
Dr. Darrel Ross, radiation oncologist, describes the new TrueBeam™ system for cancer treatment at Community Cancer Center South. This external radiation beam therapy uses high-energy radiation with pinpoint accuracy to kill cancer cells. TrueBeam, a linear accelerator, treats tumors anywhere in the body, including the brain, with great precision and speed. Treatments take just minutes and only one to five treatments are needed for a complete course of radiation.
Mitch Breeze, facilities director for Community Hospital South, discusses the "green" elements in the new Community Cancer Center South. Patients will find low-VOC materials, high-efficiency heating, cooling and lighting systems, and lots of natural daylight. The facility is one of the most eco-friendly, sustainable buildings in south Indianapolis.
