Dr. Robert Wollman is a board-certified radiation oncologist who works at Saint John's Health Center in Santa Monica, California. He uses Trilogy™ with RapidArc™ radiation therapy, a new and innovative tool for treating cancer.

Radiation can now be delivered with more precision and speed, with less chance of radiation affecting healthy tissues. Working quickly and with great accuracy are essential both for the comfort of the patient and also for safety and effectiveness of the treatment.

A patient who is on the radiation table for a prolonged time is liable to move, and even the slightest movement can divert the target area away from the radiation. If this happens, treatment is not as effective as it needs to be, and healthy tissue can end up being hit with the radiation instead.

Using Trilogy™ with RapidArc™ radiation therapy produces better results than ever before.

"So speed is extremely important and precision and rapidity are very important in terms of making sure you do exactly the same thing from day-to-day exactly the same way," says Dr. Wollman.
