Equipment and Technology
Our facilities house state-of-the-art technologies to foster a comprehensive training using a wide range of treatment modalities for all clinical scenarios. There are seven linear accelerators at our Los Angeles facility including two Varian TrueBeamSTX, one Varian VitalBeam, and one Varian Halcyon machine. We perform linear accelerator-based stereotactic radiosurgery on the Varian TrueBeamSTX system using Vision RT surface recognition software. In 2022, we opened our new HDR brachytherapy suite with Varian HDR Bravos afterloader for interstitial and intracavitary implants with dedicated Siemens CT scanner and C-arm imaging. We also perform LDR brachytherapy implants at our main hospital. Our satellite facilities in Anaheim and Ontario host several additional linear accelerators with SRS, SBRT, and VMAT capabilities as well as a Xoft electronic brachytherapy system. We have an on-site biochemistry laboratory with fully equipped tissue culture facilities and six centrifuges to support all types of molecular biology research including Western blotting, real-time PCR, and epigenetic analysis.
