Radiation Oncology

The Aultman Hospital Radiation Oncology department combines clinical expertise and advanced radiation therapy to deliver effective treatments for cancerous and benign tumors. Physicians, radiation therapists, dosimetrists, physicists and nurses work together to provide patient-centered, compassionate care while using some of the safest and most efficient technology known today for treating cancer. 

Patients are able to receive radiation at Aultman Hospital in Canton, at the Regional Cancer Center in Dover, a joint venture with Union Hospital, or at our most recent facility in Alliance, Aultman Radiation Oncology of Alliance Community Hospital. Together, these treatment centers deliver almost 20,000 treatments each year to give patients the best chance of survival from their cancer or to provide palliative relief from pain and other symptoms for patients with advanced cancer. Aultman contracts with Stark Radiation Oncology physicians to provide high-quality radiation oncology services at all three Aultman facilities. 

The following sophisticated internal and external beam radiation options are available:

  • 4-D Computed Tomography Planning – Computed tomography (CT) is utilized for radiation treatment planning. 4-D CT produces images of the tumor with normal organ motion further improving the ability to accurately target the tumor.
  • Intensity Modulated Radiation Therapy (IMRT) – IMRT allows higher doses of radiation to be delivered directly to tumors and cancer cells, while surrounding organs and tissues are protected.
  • RapidArc Technology – RapidArc shortens treatment time and can further improve precision of the radiation treatment. The dynamic multileaf collimator (MLC), variable dose rate, and variable gantry speed together generate IMRT-quality dose distributions in a single or multiple arcs or rotations around the patient.
  • Cone Beam Image Guided Radiation Therapy (IGRT) – Cone Beam IGRT technology enables CT images of the tumor and surrounding tissue to be acquired before each daily treatment. The daily CT image is compared to the initial treatment planning CT image and adjustments are made to the patient position. Cone Beam CT technology improves precision by accounting for tumor motion within a patient on a day-to-day basis. 
  • Stereotactic Radiosurgery (SRS) – a radiation technique that uses precise patient positioning and extremely accurate radiation delivery to treatment brain lesions in one or up to five treatments. Sophisticated immobilization devices are utilized in conjunction with a Varian linear accelerator to give treatment with great precision, speed and patient comfort. SRS allows patients to avoid the toxicity of entire brain radiation treatment.
  • Stereotactic Body Radiotherapy (SBRT) – Uses the same precise technique to treat tumors outside of the brain. This is most often used for small tumors in the lung, liver or spine.
  • High Dose Rate (HDR) Brachytherapy – A highly radioactive source of Iridium 192 is positioned in complex applicators to deliver a high dose of radiation quickly and directly to the tumor site. Most often used to treat uterus or cervical cancers.
  • Prostate Brachytherapy – A technique where radioactive iodine or palladium seeds are implanted directly into the prostate. The radiation therapy is effectively delivered continuously over a number of months. The activity of the seeds diminish over time within the patient and become harmless.
