Tuesday, August 28, 2012 - SJH brings state-of-the-art technology to the region for cancer care


South Jersey Healthcare recently received delivery on a new Varian Trilogy Linear Accelerator that will be used for treating cancer. The Trilogy system is the most powerful, precise, and versatile treatment system in the world. 
           
At the core of the Trilogy system is Varian’s high-powered linear accelerator, a machine that rotates around the patient to deliver radiotherapy treatments from many angles. The system is able to deliver high doses of radiation to a tumor, while minimizing the dose received by the surrounding normal tissues. The Trilogy linear accelerator was designed to deliver high doses of radiation very quickly, and with great precision. This translates into faster treatments, greater patient comfort, and the opportunity for better outcomes.
This new state-of-the-art equipment will greatly enhance the comprehensive services available at the SJH Frank and Edith Regional Cancer Pavilion.  As it takes many weeks to complete the installation and calibration process, patients may have access to this new technology as early as mid-October.
