New Technology

     The Bismarck Cancer Center has recently implemented Vision RT which is an advancement that tracks a patient’s position both before and during radiation therapy to help with treatment setup and accuracy. Vision RT uses infrared lasers to monitor patient position and movement and will signal for the radiation treatment to pause if the patient moves out of the desired position. This new technology is effective, for example, if the patient coughs or sneezes on the treatment table and will help protect surrounding healthy tissue from being exposed to radiation.

     In addition, the Bismarck Cancer Center also uses Deep Inspiration Breath Hold (DIBH), to move the heart away from the breast during therapy. DIBH will allow for reduced radiation dose to the cancer patient’s heart.  “We are confident our new cutting-edge technology will be instrumental in improving the way we treat cancer and ultimately create better patient outcomes,” said Amy Gross, Executive Director at the Bismarck Cancer Center.
