Linear Accelerator Technology

When you are facing cancer, you want state-of-the-art technology on your side. That’s why the most current linear accelerator technology is now available at Mayo Clinic Health System– Franciscan Healthcare in La Crosse. This enhanced linear accelerator is the latest, most precise way to deliver radiation therapy and is the only one of its kind in the Coulee Region. With developments, based on years of research, it provides the capability to tailor your cancer treatment to your individual body geometry. Having the power to not only treat quickly, but to deliver high, accurate dose rates are hallmarks of this cutting edge system. This means less time in the Cancer Center and more time doing what is important to you.

This full scale linear accelerator provides real-time imaging from any angle, which allows your doctor to direct higher doses of radiation with greater accuracy, protecting nearby organs and healthy tissue from unnecessary radiation. Because this system is driven by reliability, and has a clear technology road map, it is a secure long-term investment for clinics in cancer care as they continue to grow and evolve.
