Trilogy Stereotactic System

Cancer Care is Changing.

Cancer comes in different forms, and no tumor is the same. At East Jefferson General Hospital, neither is the treatment. Introducing the Trilogy Stereotactic System, one of the most powerful noninvasive tools in the fight against cancer.

The Trilogy system delivers radiation therapy to aggressively shrink tumors in the brain, spine and prostate. Using the most advanced diagnostic imaging technology to create a three dimensional image of your tumor, Trilogy creates a radiation beam that is precisely shaped to match the tumor. Healthy tissue is spared as the targeted radiation destroys the cancerous cells, giving physicians greater treatment accuracy and the flexibility to change treatment as your tumor shrinks. The end result is individualized cancer care for you.

Trilogy. Fewer treatments. Better outcomes. Faster recovery.

Now at East Jefferson General Hospital.
