Introducing New Technology to Protect Your Heart During Left-Breast Cancer Treatment
Radiation therapy is highly effective in fighting breast cancer. During treatment, our goal is to deliver radiation to your breast area while minimizing radiation exposure to healthy tissue.
Your left breast is very close to your heart, and when cancer is in the left breast, studies show that the proximity of your heart makes radiation-induced heart disease a serious risk. 21st Century Oncology is working to make sure that the radiation treatment you need to treat your cancer today will not affect your heart tomorrow. AlignRT® has been shown to help reduce radiation exposure to the heart while you're being treated for left-breast cancer. Find out more about how AlignRT works to protect your heart by clicking here.
