Radiation Oncology for Southeast Missouri
Cape Radiation Oncology is a Medical Partner of Saint Francis Medical Center that brings extraordinary cancer care to southeast Missouri. Cape Radiation Oncology physicians are certified through MD Anderson Cancer Network™.
Cape Radiation Oncology has access to the most advanced technology located within the Saint Francis Cancer Institute, including the region’s only CyberKnife® Robotic Radiosurgery System, which provides superior targeting accuracy, safety and comfort at levels that are unachievable with other treatment options.
Cape Radiation Oncology uses Electronic Brachytherapy, which delivers localized, nonradioactive therapy directly to cancer sites with minimal radiation exposure to surrounding healthy tissue. Brachytherapy is predominantly used to treat the early stages of breast cancer, but it can treat other cancers.
Cape Radiation Oncology also uses Intensity Modulated Radiation Therapy (IMRT), which has shown tremendous potential for improving cure rates, particularly for head and neck cancers, prostate cancer and lung cancer.
Cape Radiation Oncology is a member of the Radiation Therapy Oncology Group (RTOG), a multi-institutional research organization funded by the National Cancer Institute. With approximately 40 years of clinical trial experience, RTOG is currently running more than 40 active studies involving radiation therapy.
