The Trilogy™ Stereotactic System at Sacred Heart Hospital
Sacred Heart Hospital has the only Cancer Center in Northwest Florida that offers the Trilogy™ Stereotactic System from Varian Medical Systems, the the most advanced, sophisticated machine of its type in the world. Thanks to this new system, Sacred Heart Hospital can now treat treat a wider range of cancers more precisely and more effectively, with fewer side effects.
As the leading image-guided radiotherapy system, Trilogy marks the beginning of a new generation of cancer care. The versatile Trilogy system combines imaging and treatment technologies, and can be used to deliver the widest range of external beam radiotherapies.
Advanced imaging capabilities built into the system allow therapists to position patients for treatment with unprecedented accuracy. A respiratory gating system compensates for any tumor movement that occurs as a patient breathes.
The Trilogy system is powerful, and it can deliver radiotherapy doses at least 60 percent faster than conventional accelerators. This shortens the length of time patients need to spend undergoing treatment. In addition, the radiation beam is highly precise, allowing clinicians to deliver treatments with unprecedented accuracy.
