Linear Accelerator/Radiation/Oncology — $4,000,000
A linear accelerator (LINAC) is the device most commonly used for external beam radiation treatments for patients. The machine shown below treats cancer anywhere in the body where radiation treatment is indicated, including lung, breast, prostate and head and neck.The system uses intuitive visual cues to enhance safety and reduce operation times so patient throughput can be optimized. Streamlined imaging and patient positioning tools enable more flexibility to treat clinical cases throughout the body. The machine has the power to not only treat quickly, but to deliver high, accurate dose rates.
This device delivers high-energy x-rays to the area of the patient's tumor, usually in daily treatment sessions over the course of several weeks. An additional LINAC is necessary to help support the daily treatment needs of the community and will ease the patient scheduling process.
