TUCC is pleased to announce that we are now treating our patients with urologic cancers on the Versa HD linear accelerator. Versa HD safely delivers radiation beams through conventional techniques, including intensity modulated radiation therapy and image-guided radiation therapy, as well as more advanced volumetric arc therapy and stereotactic body radiotherapy (SBRT).
This technology is a game-changer for radiation therapy. We are excited to deliver the most advanced radiation therapy techniques while setting the standard in patient safety.
TUCC is one of the only centers in the U.S. to offer on site, comprehensive radiation therapy for urologic cancers. Our radiation oncologist, Thomas Pugh, M.D. is board certified in radiation oncology. He is the only radiation oncologist in Colorado whose practice is devoted solely to the delivery of radiation therapy for the treatment of urologic cancers. TUCC is now treating our radiation oncology patients on the Elekta Versa HD linear accelerator. Versa HD safely delivers radiation beams through conventional techniques and is specially designed to visualize and track the target cancer site and surrounding critical structures, which helps minimizes the risk of side effects. The system allows TUCC to deliver the most advanced radiation therapy techniques while setting the standard in patient safety.
