What is Calypso's GPS for the Body®?
Calypso's GPS for the Body® technology in Phoenix, Arizona provides accurate, precise, real-time tracking to keep radiation focused on the tumor, not surrounding healthy tissue. The result? Calypso cancer treatment helps the radiation reach the target to better fight the cancer and patients report experiencing fewer side effects.
Calypso prostate cancer treatment enables doctors to localize and track the tumor before and during each prostate radiation treatment. When the tumor moves outside of the field of radiation, therapy can be stopped and the patient is re-positioned to ensure that the tumor, not surrounding healthy tissue, receives the radiation dose. The patient education video provides you with an overview of the importance of monitoring organ motion during radiation therapy delivery.
Cancer causes a variety of emotions from anger, to confusion, to depression. Prostate cancer will bring a man face to face with his own unique problems.
Prostate cancer support groups are meetings where prostate cancer patients can gain additional information and share their experiences with fellow patients. AZPCC believes this is an important part of overall treatment.
In cities throughout the United States the Cyberknife is being marketed extensively as an alternative to Intensity Modulated Radiation Therapy (IMRT) and Image-Guided Radiation Therapy (IGRT) for the treatment of prostate cancer.
Unfortunately this effort has the potential to confuse patients regarding what is the safest, most effective radiation treatment option for prostate cancer.
