Northside Cancer Center expands radiation oncology services


April 30, 2014
ATLANTA — To better accommodate the growing number of patients requiring treatment at the hospital's Atlanta Cancer Center, Northside has expanded its radiation therapy services.

Northside has completed a thorough renovation of its flagship Cancer Center in Atlanta including the relocation of an existing linear accelerator from another facility and the addition of a fourth and brand new linear accelerator – Varian Medical Systems' TrueBeam.

TrueBeam can treat cancers anywhere in the body, where radiation treatment is indicated, and opens the door to new possibilities for the treatment of challenging cases such as cancers in the lung, breast, abdomen, head and neck.

It offers many advanced features, using imaging to show tumors in real time, customizing the amount of radiation sent to different parts of the tumor and treating the entire tumor in an arc while sparing normal, healthy tissue.

Northside's Cancer Center also underwent a complete renovation of its facility.

Additional exam rooms and dressing rooms were built, the waiting room was enlarged and all spaces were redesigned.

The new facility and technology enables Northside to see more patients, while reducing wait times they might experience.
