Precision Technology

Our linear accelerator is one of the most advanced technologies in medicine today. Its high-resolution scans and Image Guided Radiation Therapy (IGRT) target cancer cells with precision, leaving healthy tissue largely untouched. We can also vary the intensity of radiation (IMRT) and conform it to an exact 3-D profile of a tumor, allowing for larger doses and, ultimately, higher success rates.

Comprehensive Convenience

All your radiation, chemotherapy and integrative therapies are provided in one location, for your continuous care and convenience. A Patient Care Navigator coordinates the details, serving as your liaison to the various hospital groups. And our paperless system lets you enter, leave and move through the radiation department quickly, with the swipe of a badge.

Personalized Care

Your care and comfort begins with a dedicated team that remains with you for the duration of your therapy. Together, you’ll develop a treatment plan based on your physical needs and personal schedule, so healing and living can take place as one. You’ll also have access to nutritional counseling; education on topics such as skin care and managing side effects; and a wide variety of support groups to help you stay positive and emotionally healthy.

Therapeutic Comfort

Our radiation therapy suite provides all the comforts of a Planetree facility. You’ll find well-appointed lounges with full length windows and fireplaces; open, airy consultation rooms that can accommodate friends and family; and a treatment room adorned with wood accents, artwork and adjustable lighting, all designed to soothe the spirit and promote healing.

Griffin offers the most advanced technologies available in medicine today, including Intensity Modulated Radiation Therapy (IMRT) and Image Guided Radiation Therapy (IGRT), together with the medical expertise of Yale Therapeutic Radiology, one of the largest and most well respected groups of radiation oncologists in the region.
