Invented by Beaumont doctors and physicists as the next generation of radiation therapy, Omnibeam gives physicians and cancer patients new hope in the fight against this disease. Omnibeam is powered by Elekta Axesse, an FDA-approved technology.
Omnibeam offers clinical advantages over other systems:
• Non-surgical – Uses live imaging at each treatment session so it can precisely target cancer cells
• Safer treatment – Harms less healthy tissue and reduces side effects
• Reduces treatment time – The high-powered linear accelerator delivers the highest dose possible precisely at the target to quickly destroy cancer cells
• Proven accuracy – Proven in numerous studies published in peer-reviewed journals
Omnibeam can be used to treat small- and medium-sized tumors anywhere in the body – even those deep within the tissue. It can also give new hope to patients with inoperable or surgically complex tumors, such as those that encircle the spine.
Omnibeam is most likely to help patients with the following types of cancer:
• Spine and/or brain
• Gynecological area
• Head and neck
• Intestines and stomach
