Our Services

A Radiation Oncologist will work with your primary care doctor and other cancer specialists, such as surgeons and medical oncologists, to oversee your care. He or she will discuss the details of your cancer with you, the role of radiation therapy in your overall treatment plan and what to expect from your treatment.

Gamma Knife Perfexion

Gamma Knife is the most advanced radiosurgical tool available to treat a variety of brain lesions and disorders, including cancers of the brain. An alternative to invasive surgery, Gamma Knife Perfexion used at the Gamma Knife Center of Oregon focuses 192 independent beams of radiation on a single, precisely targeted location. With pinpoint accuracy, Gamma Knife can destroy tumors with no incisions, minimal blood loss and minimal damage to surrounding healthy tissue.

HDR brachytherapy

High-dose-rate (HDR) brachytherapy involves the remote placement of a tiny, very highly radioactive source, which is housed in a lead lined device...

Image-guided radiation therapy (IGRT)

Radiation oncologists use image-guided radiation therapy, or IGRT, to help better deliver the radiation to the cancer since tumors can move between...

Intensity-modulated radiation therapy (IMRT)

Intensity-modulated radiation therapy is a specialized form of 3D-CRT that allows radiation to be more exactly shaped to fit the tumor. With IMRT,...

LDR brachytherapy

LDR involves the longer placement of the temporary (several days) or permanent radiation source into the tumor area such as prostate seed implant...

Mammosite

MammoSite is a treatment option for early-stage breast cancer following breast-conserving surgery. Current standard treatment for early-stage...

Neo-adjuvant therapy

Chemotherapy may be given before (neoadjuvant) or after (adjuvant) surgery to destroy any cancer cells.

Radiation therapy

External beam radiation therapy treatment, also called x-ray therapy, is directed at the tumor from a machine located away from your body, usually...

Stereotactic radiosurgery

Stereotactic radiosurgery is a type of radiation therapy that uses a rigid head frame attached to the skull to aim high-dose radiation beams...

Three-dimensional conformal radiation therapy (3D-CRT)

Tumors are not regular; they come in different shapes and sizes. Three-dimensional conformal radiation thetapy, or 3D-CRT, uses computers and...
