Our Radiation Oncology Therapies

3D Radiation Therapy (3D-CRT)

One of the therapies we use at Morristown-Hamblen is 3D radiation therapy (also called three-dimensional radiation therapy). This procedure uses computer technology to create a 3D picture of your tumor so that multiple radiation beams can be shaped exactly (conform) to the contour of the treatment area.

Benefits of 3D-CRT

  • It is particularly useful when the tumor has an irregular shape. 
  • This procedure allows doctors to give the highest possible dose of radiation to a tumor, while sparing your surrounding normal tissue as much as possible.

High Dose Rate Brachytherapy (HDR)
