Radiation Oncology

Radiation Oncology uses precise doses of radiation to treat tumors with pinpoint accuracy. It can be used alone, or in conjunction with other treatments such as surgery or chemotherapy.

The White Plains Hospital Center for Cancer Care’s Department of Radiation Oncology combines state-of-the-art therapy using advanced equipment in a comfortable, personal environment. The Center offers the most advanced tools and technology available anywhere in the fight against cancer, and an expert staff that trained at some of the finest teaching hospitals in the United States.

The Radiation Oncology Department’s leading edge technology include the Varian® EDGE™ and TrueBeam linear accelerators, which allow our radiation oncologists to offer patients the full array of advanced radiotherapy treatment options, including:

  • Stereotactic body radiotherapy (SBRT), also known as Stereotactic ablative radiotherapy (SABR)
  • Stereotactic radiosurgery (SRS)
  • Volumetric modulated arc therapy (VMAT)
  • Intensity modulated radiotherapy (IMRT)
  • Image Guided Radiotherapy (IGRT)
  • 3D conformal radiotherapy (3D-CRT)
  • Breath-hold and breathing-phase gated radiotherapy delivery using Varian’s Optical Surface Monitoring (OSMS), Calypso, and Real-Time Position Management (RPM) systems
  • Electron beam therapy

Within the Department of Radiation Oncology, the Center for Radiosurgery offers multi-disciplinary collaboration between radiation oncologists and surgical specialists. Patients have access to the most sophisticated radiosurgical treatment options for tumors of the brain, spine, lungs, liver, pancreas, prostate and head and neck utilizing the Varian EDGE® radiosurgery system.
