|New Radiation Therapy Treatment Helps Fight Breast Cancer|
Women at Saint Elizabeth Breast Care Center are benefiting from a new radiation therapy treatment called AccuBoost® that cuts down on the body’s exposure to radiation. Saint Elizabeth is the only hospital in Midwest to offer AccuBoost, which uses brachytherapy technology to deliver a “boost” of radiation in or close to the tumor as possible. The new treatment benefits women undergoing radiation treatment by minimizing damage to nearby, healthy body tissue and organs, over a shorter treatment period.
