Earlier Detection. Cutting-Edge Treatment. Better Outcomes.
It’s quite simple. The earlier we see cancer, the sooner we can treat it. That’s why we’ve brought the world’s most sophisticated cancer-detecting and cancer-eradicating technologies to the Community Cancer Institute. These latest systems are designed to maximize your comfort, minimize your wait times and help us reach cancer in new ways.
One of the few cancer care centers to have these technologies all under one roof – and the only one in Central California – we can identify, monitor and treat your cancer faster and more accurately than ever before.
Philips Vereos Full-Digital PET/CT Scanner
One of just a handful in the nation, this scanner is a huge leap forward when it comes to speed and detecting the tiniest bit of cancer. The crystal-clear, high-resolution images it captures, enables doctors to detect the tiniest cancer and accurately determine stage and status.
Not only does the advanced PET/CT scanner provide the clearest images possible, but it does so in a fraction of the time of traditional systems –providing a much-improved experience for our patients.
- Only fully-digital PET/CT scanner in Central Valley; 1 of 3 in California
- Full body scan in 10 minutes
- Finds cancer as small as 2.0 Millimeters
Philips Ingenia Fully-Digital 3T MR Scanner
Our fully-digital MRI scanner delivers high-resolution images that show soft tissue cancers better than images from older units. The clearer images lead to more-precise treatment and can eliminate the need for additional CT scans.
An immersive visual/audio experience provides a comforting distraction, and lets technicians communicate with you during the scan.
CyberKnife Robotic Linear Accelerator
CyberKnife® destroys tumors with radiation while sparing surrounding healthy tissue, even if the tumor is moving. With pinpoint accuracy and from any angle imaginable, CyberKnife enables physicians to target high-dose radiation at hard-to-reach tumors that otherwise might be impossible to treat.
Because of its ability to deliver high-dose radiation with absolute precision, CyberKnife can in some cases even reduce the number of treatments necessary. This means you can get back to your normal activities sooner.
- First-of-its-kind RoboCouch patient positioning system
- Sychrony Respiratory Tracking System enables continued treatment regardless of patient motion
- Stereoscopic X-Ray System for real-time target identification
Varian TrueBeam Linear Accelerator
The TrueBeam Linear Accelerator is a fully integrated system for image-guided radiotherapy and radiosurgery. The TrueBeam system treats cancer anywhere in the body where radiation treatment is needed, including lung, breast, prostate, head and neck. It also can precisely image the patient.
Its Optical Surface Measuring System and integrated CT scanner help us lock on to the target area. And the ability to image 10x/second ensures precise treatment - even if the patient moves.
