Stanford Emanuel Radiation Oncology Center
Using state-of-the-art equipment, the Stanford Emanuel Radiation Oncology Center provides some of the most advanced radiation therapy available anywhere. The Center is a joint venture between Emanuel and Stanford Hospital & Clinics and Stanford University School of Medicine, and is staffed by Stanford physicians and physicists.
Varian Trilogy Linear Accelerator
The technological heart of the Center is our $3 million Varian Trilogy linear accelerator, technology that focuses therapeutic radiation exactly where the patient needs it. Tools like this enable our Stanford radiation oncologists to perform a variety of advanced procedures, including:
- Precisely target tumor sites using IMRT technology
- Time radiation delivery to a patient's breathing cycle using our Respiratory Gating technology
- Perform image-guided radiation therapy for the most accurate targeting of cancer cells
- Stereotactic Radiosurgery (SRS) to eradicate cancer cells in the head and neck, often in a single session
- Stereotactic Body Radiation Therapy (SBRT) to kill cancer cells within the body, often in just a few sessions
Partial Breast Irradiation Therapy
Emanuel Cancer Center offers breast cancer patients a new, more convenient alternative to conventional radiation therapy. With Partial Breast Irradiation, women with early-stage breast cancer, who are considered appropriate candidates, receive their entire radiation treatment in a five-day period instead of the six to seven weeks required by conventional radiation therapy. Patients are monitored closely by their radiation oncologist and team, ensuring this treatment is an equally effective way to conquer breast cancer.
Stanford Emanuel Radiation Oncology Center is located in Emanuel Cancer Center at 880 E. Tuolumne Road in Turlock. For more information or to schedule an appointment, call (209) 664-5030.
