  • TrueBeam Radiosurgery

    Rhode Island Hospital is only hospital in the state to offer TrueBeam cancer treatment, a state-of-the-art form of radiosurgery that treats cancerous and non-cancerous conditions by shaping its cancer-fighting radiation beam to the tumor.

    TruebeamThis precise beam ensures that the maximum prescribed dose of radiation is delivered to the entire tumor while protecting healthy tissue. TrueBeam's remarkable accuracy is further enhanced by its ability to adapt treatment to adjust to breathing and other body movements so that radiation is delivered completely and safely.

    TrueBeam radiosurgery can deliver treatment in as little as 15 to 20 minutes for a more comfortable experience and reduce the likelihood of body or tumor movements, increasing overall accuracy.

    In addition to its treatment technology, TrueBeam was designed for optimal patient experience with quieter operation and built-in music capabilities. Patients have constant two-way audio and video control that allows for easy communication with the therapist throughout treatment and enables close monitoring at all times.
