The Georgia Cancer Center Radiation Therapy facility houses four linear accelerators, a computed tomography machine (CT), and a positron emission computed tomography machine (PET/CT). The PET/CT machine is used to find and diagnose cancer. The CT machine is used to plan out and construct treatment portals for cancer patients. The linear accelerators are used to administer the radiation treatments. We recently acquired a state-of the-art equipment “Edge Radiosurgery System” known as surgery without a knife and treatment as sharp as a scalpel. With the Edge system, clinics may be able to treat more patients because of the speed, precision, and streamlined treatment planning. It provides a turn-key solution for delivering full-body radiosurgery treatments with accuracy. Edge offer advanced tools designed to deliver highly confrontal dose distributions to tumors of the lung, brain, spine and other areas of the body where radiation is indicated.
