A New Generation Of Cancer Care
A diagnosis of cancer is overwhelming for anyone, but at Albert C. Mak, M.D., Inc., we have opened the door to a new generation of cancer care. We are the first treatment center in San Gabriel Valley to provide external beam radiation therapy in utilizing the new Varian iX Linear Accelerator with Intensity Modulated Radiation Therapy (IMRT) capability and On-Board Imaging (OBI). IMRT is an advanced form of high-precision radiotherapy that enables us to deliver accurate and more precise radiation treatment. In addition, we also utilize Image Guided Radiotherapy (IGRT), a sophisticated, cutting-edge imaging technology, to verify patient position and tumor position at the time of treatment. By adding IGRT, we can now precisely treat tumors and avoid healthy tissue. Our computer controlled targeting capabilities mean a better chance of cure with few side effects.
