Advanced Medical Technology Lets Us Provide Advanced Care

At the GW Radiation Oncology Center, our advanced imaging and radiosurgery technology allows our staff to employ many of the latest techniques to diagnose and treat cancer.

The advanced technology we use includes the GE Optima CT580 W imaging scanner and the Varian Truebeam STx radiosurgery system.

The GE Optima CT580 W is high-resolution computerized tomography (CT) imaging system that features:

  • High clarity scanning with exceptional quality that provide physicians with more detailed images.
  • Quick operation to reduce the chance of patient motion that can ruin an image, and so that exams are more comfortable.
  • Advanced table design that provides with ability to scan patients clearly from head to toe.
  • Convenient for patients of all sizes, including larger patients weighing up to 650 pounds.



The TrueBeam™ STx system from Varian Medical Systems is one of the most advanced radiosurgery technologies available
for treating cancer. It gives doctors the ability to provide quick, powerful, non-invasive cancer treatments that offer:

  • Pinpoint accuracy and precision for treating cancers in any area of the body
  • Quicker delivery for more comfortable treatments
  • The ability to deliver a prescribed dose of radiation from any angle thanks to the system's rotation around the patient
  • Real-time imaging tools that allow clinicians to “see” the tumor they are about to treat.
  • Closed-circuit television systems that allow therapists to monitor the patient at all times
