The Latest in Advanced Radiosurgery Technology
Redefining radiosurgery, TrueBeam STx is a technological leap forward. Performing a number of treatment techniques such as stereotactic body radiotherapy (SBRT) and stereotactic radiosurgery (SRS), its power, accuracy and speed set it ahead of more conventional treatments.
Numerous features, like a High-Intensity Mode, multiple energy levels, high-definition beam shaping and very sophisticated imaging and motion management systems give our providers game-changing tools to design optimal treatments for their patients. In fact, TrueBeam STx opens the door to new possibilities to treat cancer cases in the brain, lung, liver, pancreas and spine.
Great Cancer Care, Close to Home
Get great radiosurgery care close to home. John Stoddard is excited to be the first in the Midwest to offer this revolutionary treatment option to our patients starting in February, 2011.
Designed for Patient Comfort and Experience
Beyond its impressive technical achievements, TrueBeam STx was designed with many features that enhance patient comfort and improve the overall patient experience.
With shorter treatment times and quieter operation, TrueBeam STx provides for a comfortable environment for patients. Enhanced communication technology enables a constant interaction between the patient and the therapist who operates the equipment. Three closed-circuit television systems enable the therapist to monitor the patient at all times. Music can be played during treatment, helping to increase patient comfort.
