Technologies

At Clermont County Cancer Center, we offer the newest, most up-to-date equipment, to meet your cancer care needs. We have on-site CT simulation, on GE’s LightSpeed Ultra CT scanner, which is a third generation multi-slice helical CT scanner, capable of imaging 8 slices per rotation.

Dr. Prakash Patel is the first radiation oncologist to offer the newest Elekta technololgy in Southern and Western Ohio, technologies such as

  • Latest Elekta Synergy Linear Accelerator
  • Hexapod™ Treatment Table (Robotic Localization System)
  • Stereotactic Body Radiation Therapy (SBRT)
  • Intensity Modulated Radiation Therapy (IMRT)
  • Image Guided Radiation Therapy (IGRT)
  • Cone Beam CT (CBCT)
  • Pinnacle™ Treatment Planning System
  • Electronic Portal Imaging
  • 3D Conformal Radiation Therapy

Launch of Versa HD System

New flagship linear accelerator designed to deliver higher-quality radiation therapy for more patients, more cancer types.

Versatility to deliver better treatments to more patients

Versa HD gives clinicians the flexibility to deliver conventional therapies to treat a wide range of tumors throughout the body, while also enabling treatment of highly complex cancers that require extreme targeting precision. As an integrated treatment system, Versa HD offers the versatility to address today’s growing cancer management challenges.

Some of the features of Latest Versa HD

  • Reduced Treatment Time
  • Potential for Reduced Side Effects due to Precision
  • New Standards in Treatment Efficiency
    Harnessing the latest advances in flattening filter-free beam techonology, the new High Dose Rate mode of Versa HD provides does rates three times higher than previous generation Elekta Linear Accelerators.
  • Superior Target Conformance
    Fully integrated with Elekta’s revolutionary Agility multi-leaf collimator, Versa HD leverages 160-line resolution leaves, a 40cm x 40 cm treatment field and leaf speeds more than two times faster than other MLC systems.
  • A Ground-breaking Combination of High Dose Rate Delivery with Ultra-fast MLC Leaf Movement
    Explore exquisite modulation and time saving synergies while taking advanced therapies such as VMAT, SRS and SRT to new levels.
  • The Convergence of Conventional Radiotherapy with Advanced Steriotactic Precision.

Hexapod™ Treatment Table

The Hexapod™ Treatment Table is a robotic treatment table that allows for patient positioning correction in the primary directions (x,y,z) and also accounts for rotational error (roll, pitch, yaw).

This cutting edge technology allows for the most precise patient alignment possible to guarantee that patients are treated with the highest standards available.

Pinnacle™ Treatment Planning System

Our highly skilled therapists and dosimetrist will accurately plan and deliver the most appropriate radiation treatment based on your individual case.

At Clermont County Cancer Center, we use a very advanced treatment planning system, called Pinnacle. Pinnacle allows us to precisely spare normal structures while still giving adequate dose to the cancerous tissues.

Impac Mosaiq™ -Electronic Medical Record

All of our patient’s medical information is stored in our electronic medical record system called Mosaiq. This system allows all of our staff to efficiently access your information via a center-wide computer system. Mosaiq allows easy integration of each patient’s diagnosis, history, nursing assessments, treatment films, scheduling, and laboratory results. Mosaiq is also the record and verify system fully integrated with the linear accelerator that allows for radiation treatment delivery to be captured immediately at the time of delivery.

GE™ CT simulator

We have on-site CT simulation, which enables our board-certified radiation oncologist to precisely distinguish the cancerous area. CT simulation allows us to provide optimal accuracy in delineating the tumor site. This technology also allows the radiation oncologist to design each patient’s treatment plan specific to the shape of their body and internal structures.
