St. Luke’s Regional Cancer Center celebrated the opening of its news linear accelerator this week with a ribbon cutting ceremony and open house.

Construction for a vault to house the new accelerator at St. Luke’s Regional Cancer began in late 2017 and finished in April near 10th Avenue East and Superior Street. The linear accelerator replaces an older model at St. Luke’s. The TrueBeam linear accelerator from Varian allows oncologists to treat patients through external beam radiation by delivering high-energy x-rays and electrons directly to a tumor. Designed from the ground up to treat moving targets with advanced speed and accuracy, the TrueBeam system treats cancer anywhere in the body where radiation treatment is indicated, including lung, breast, prostate and head and neck.
