At the Methodist Richardson Cancer Center, we are dedicated to providing you or your loved one with advanced cancer treatment methods available using technologically sophisticated equipment. Cancer treatment may consist of surgery, chemotherapy, radiation, or a combination of the three.

We keep pace with the latest innovative treatment options. Some of the highlights to the treatment options available are: 

  • Shaped Beam Surgery™ program at Methodist Richardson Cancer Center, a noninvasive treatment method featuring Novalis®, allows physicians to treat tumors with high-dose radiation while minimizing harm to the surrounding healthy tissue.

  • A cone beam CT added to the Varian Linear Accelerator Image-Guided Radiotherapy (IGRT), an image-guided radiation therapy (IGRT) machine, creates real-time 3D images of a patient's tumor before treatment to make sure the radiation is precisely targeted.
  • Intensity Modulated Radiation Therapy (IMRT) for selected tumors, including head and neck tumors and prostate cancer, is a way of using multiple beams to reduce the amount of high dose radiation received by healthy tissue.
  • Stereotactic body radiosurgery (SBRT) delivers high dose per treatment radiation to tumors of the lung, spine, and prostate. Patients can finish their therapy in as few as three treatments.
