The Department of Radiation Oncology is in the new Perelman Center. Occupying approximately 80,000 square feet on the Concourse Level, the new treatment facilities includes the most advanced proton and conventional radiation treatment modalities available as well as public spaces designed for the highest levels of patient comfort.


Small Animal Radiation Research Platform (SARRP):

Examples
 
Research Platform Advantages:
  • 3D Volumetric image guidance
  • High resolution, high precision
  • Non-invasive procedure
  

System Features:
  • Isocenter accuracy to 0.25 mm
  • On board cone beam CT
  • Non-coplanar field arrangements
Applications:
  • Radiobiology
  • DNA Damage Response
  • Oncology research
 
Description:

The SARRP research platform has a flexibility of design that will meet any initial specification, and allows individual user groups to add on supporting imaging technologies to meet their future research needs—enabling continual system adaptation to facilitate the development of new and innovative applications.

The repositionable product frame and automatically rotatable specimen stage allow radiation to be delivered at multiple angles without the need to reposition the specimen between exposures.
