Easton Hospital Adds AccuBoost to Cancer Treatment Options
Easton, Pa (June 2, 2011): Easton Regional Cancer Center at Easton Hospital has added AccuBoost – an image-guided radiation therapy (IGRT) technique that uses targeted High-Dose Radiation (HDR)- to its radiation oncology services. Used in the treatment of breast cancer, AccuBoost targets radiation to the lumpectomy cavity while avoiding the normal breast tissue. This non-invasive radiation technique is conducted through a simple outpatient procedure.
“Offering AccuBoost means that our breast cancer patients have a more accurate, non-invasive treatment available to them,” stated Brian Finestein, Chief Executive Officer, Easton Hospital. “Easton Hospital strives to provide our patients the latest innovations that improve the quality of their care and we’re excited to be able to offer this advanced technique in our Cancer Center.”
Easton Regional Cancer Center has a long-standing history of providing quality cancer care to the residents of Easton and its surrounding communities. Our commitment to delivering advanced treatment is supported by our partnership with the nationally renowned Fox Chase Cancer Center. Additionally, the Easton Regional Cancer Center is accredited by the American College of Surgeons Commission on Cancer, a certification achieved by only one in every four hospitals that treat cancer.
