Improved Cosmetic Breast Cancer Treatment Manufacturer Launches Awareness Campaign in USA

Intra Operative Radiation Therapy

Rad Onc Solutions, Delray Beach, FL, a distributor of medical devices and accessories, announced today that it has signed an agreement as sales agent for the LIAC, a High Energy, mobile linear accelerator for Electron Beam Intra Operative Radiation Therapy (e-IORT), developed by S.I.T. Sordina IORT Technologies USA, Inc. (SIT), McKinney, TX.

Rad Onc Solutions will campaign to raise awareness of the benefits and costs savings associated with IORT for patients and clinics alike. A large amount of clinical data is already available including such papers as 'Is IORT ready for roll-out?' - Esposito et al., which concludes:

"In light of the existing data, IORT and IOERT should be now considered as an alternative to EBRT for specifically selected and well-informed patients. The higher risk of local recurrence should be widely discussed and compared with the great advantage of a single-fraction radiation treatment. The current paradigm is that of striving to deliver ‘minimum effective treatment’ to patients with cancer, and with this in mind, it is necessary to inform suitable patients about the novel options for the treatment of their cancer."

Breast Cancer Treatment Using e-IORT at Jupiter Medical Center

Jupiter Medical Center is one of a handful of facilities around the country offering this innovative therapy from SIT, in its world-class Comprehensive Breast Program, which was the first program in Palm Beach and Martin Counties to receive the National Accreditation Program for Breast Centers designation.

Electron Beam Intra Operative Radiation Therapy (e-IORT) provides specialized treatment for cancer patients, especially certain women with breast cancer, allowing physicians to deliver a dose of radiation to appropriate patients during their surgery. By delivering this radiation at the same time the cancerous tissue is removed, six to seven weeks of post-operative radiation can be reduced to one day of treatment in some cases.

Some of the benefits of e-IORT:

  • Lessened Treatment Time
  • Reduced Radiation Exposure
  • Improved Cosmetic Results
  • Faster Return to a Normal Quality of Life

e-IORT allows radiation and surgical oncologists to visually see the exact area they need to radiate and immediately deliver a therapeutic dose to the affected area, sparing surrounding healthy tissue. In the best of cases, this single dose of radiation will be all a patient needs. For many others, this breakthrough will cut their required course of radiation treatment in half.
