Facility and Equipment
The Clinical Physics Division of Radiation Oncology at Beaumont Health is currently staffed with 20 physicists and 17 dosimetrists. We provide a full range of clinical services at three Cancer Centers at Royal Oak, Troy and Dearborn, including proton therapy with pencil beam scanning, IMRT, VMAT, SBRT, SRS, IGRT, and Adaptive RT for both external beam, and HDR/LDR brachytherapy, intravascular brachytherapy and electronic brachytherapy. The three centers maintain three large bore CT scanners (Philips), one large bore PET-CT (Philips), one large bore 3T MRI (Philips), one Gamma Knife unit (Elekta), ten high-energy linear accelerators (Elekta), as well as Pinnacle and RayStation planning systems and MOSAIQ OIS. Eight of the ten accelerators have onboard cone beam imaging capability; five of them have dynamic VMAT delivery function and six degree-of-freedom robotic table. Extra imaging and localization devices in external beam radiotherapy include 4D real-time ultrasound and Active Breathing Control device (Elekta). In addition, 3 Nucletron HDR units with online planning systems, ultrasound units, and C-arms are utilized in the brachytherapy program. It is anticipated that an Elekta MR linac will be installed in 2019. Beaumont Health System also has a medical residency program in radiation oncology and a dosimetry education program.
