Respiratory Gating

Washington Health System Radiation Oncology in partnerships with UPMC Caner Center offers state-of-the-art 4D gated radiation therapy, which compliments a variety of radiation therapy services. 4D gated radiation therapy is a form of cutting-edge radiation therapy planning and delivery that captures the motion of a tumor as the patient breathes, allowing oncologists to pinpoint tumors with the most accurate treatment possible and thereby minimize side effects by limiting doses to nearby normal structures.
