Our History of Mobile Therapy
Our experience over the past 10 years of mobile radiation therapy has given us the knowledge to provide effective mobile units and has proven that mobile radiation therapy is convenient, reliable, and cost effective. We began treating skin cancers with superficial x-ray units before pioneering mobile HDR radiation therapy 3 years ago.
Radiation Therapy
High Dose Rate Brachytherapy (HDR) is a time tested and safe method that allows physicians to treat cancer with greater precision and less trauma to the patient. As a result, this course of treatment is much shorter and more comfortable than other cancer treatments, and is often performed on an outpatient basis.
