WORLD-CLASS CANCER CARE

The Bismarck Cancer Center (BCC) allows patients in our area to receive state-of-the-art cancer treatment and caring support while staying close to home and loved ones. CHI St. Alexius Health and Sanford Health Bismarck joined forces to build and operate this facility. We have a highly-skilled radiation therapy team of oncology nurses, radiation therapists, a medical physicist and dosimetrists working with your radiation oncologist to care for you during your treatment. Our compassionate staff is trained to care for you with the same state-of-the art equipment often found in larger metropolitan areas.

The Bismarck Cancer Center has recently added Vision RT Technology. 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, we use Deep Inspiration Hold (DIBH), to move the heart away from the breast during therapy. DIBH will allow for reduced radiation dose to the heart.

External Beam Radiation Therapy involves directing a beam of radiation from outside the body to a specific cancerous organ or tissue inside the body.  This radiation therapy uses a linear accelerator, a high energy x-ray machine, to direct the radiation to the tumor.
