Our Elekta Infinity with VMAT technology system offers a non-invasive alternative to surgery and traditional radiation therapy for people that have been diagnosed with lung cancer or tumors that have spread to the lungs. We are the first and only treatment facility in NYC to offer Elekta VMAT technology, which uses the most sophisticated 3D imaging and intensity modulated radiation therapy that helps conform the radiation beams to the shape of your tumor. This next-generation therapy allows the radiation to be delivered precisely to the intended area with state-of-the-art image guided techniques, allowing clinical staff to spare more surrounding healthy tissue and better avoid nearby critical anatomy. Sophisticated monitoring tools such as body laser scanning further enhance precision by monitoring treatment in real-time to ensure that the dose is delivered as precisely as the radiation oncologist prescribes it. The flexibility to deliver treatments in uninterrupted rotations of the linear accelerator allows for faster treatment times (often as little as 7 minutes per day).
We are also the first and only in NY to offer the same state-of-the-art system used by renowned MD Anderson’s BrainSuite. Anatom-e combines the best anatomic atlas’, the best papers that define standards of care, and treatment guidelines with CT scans. This allows our radiation oncologists a second check in developing a precise plan that avoids potential anatomical structures that if treated may contribute to side effects. We are part of a research collaboration that allows us access and participation in ongoing protocols.
Why Choose Radiosurgery with Elekta Infinity for Lung Cancer?
Requires No Anesthesia.
It’s an outpatient procedure which is completed in only five treatments.
We are Manhattan’s first freestanding radiation oncology treatment center completely conceived with your comfort and well-being in mind. Here you can relax by the fireplace, slip into a plush robe in your own private dressing room, and take in the peaceful calm of our beautiful flora aquarium. To us, the tranquility of a spa-like setting is part of your healing process. But the real comfort of being at The Farber Center is knowing that you’re treated by Ivy League-trained physicians with the most advanced radiation technology, which means faster treatment, fewer side effects, and a greater potential for cure.
