Midwest Cancer Care offers some of the most advanced technologies available to diagnose and treat cancer:
The da Vinci®: Provides greater precision, control and access to hard-to-reach areas, allowing extremely complex operations to be performed through just a few small incisions. Learn more about da Vinci
CyberKnife®: A radiation treatment that pinpoints and destroys harmful tumors without surgery or anesthesia, and with few, if any, side effects. Learn more about CyberKnife.
Gamma Knife®: A non-invasive radiation treatment that leads the industry as the most precise radiosurgical treatment for difficult brain tumors. Learn more about Gamma Knife.
Mammosite®: An advanced breast cancer technology that targets cancer cells and limits the exposure of health tissue to radiation and minimizes treatment time. Learn more about Mammosite.
Breast MRI & Minimally Invasive Biopsy Capabilities: Tools for accurate evaluation of suspicious breast lesions.
Three Linear Accelerators: Deliver image-guided intensity modulation radiation therapy. Enables radiation therapists to more precisely deliver high doses of external radiation to cancerous tumors of the lung, liver, pancreas and potentially other areas.
64-Slice CT Scanner: Produces the clearest images to diagnose and stage tumors.
Prostate Brachytherapy: A minimally-invasive treatment that involves placing radioactive seeds into the prostate gland using ultrasound image-guidance.
Image-Guided Brachytherapy: Operating room suite for treating prostate, breast, cervical and other types of cancer using brachytherapy.
MR Spectroscopy: For biochemical imaging.
Intra-Operative Big Bore CT: Provides better visualization and staging of tumors during surgical procedures.
Radiation Oncology: Treats cancer with beams of high-energy radiation. Learn more about radiation oncology.
PET for Oncology: Positron emission tomography (PET) images the function of cells to show the difference between normal and diseased tissue. Learn more about PET for oncology.
RFA: Radiofrequency ablation uses heat to destroy abnormal tissue. Learn more about radiofrequency ablation.
