It is a daily commitment when you are a cancer patient undergoing radiation therapy. You must show up for therapy nearly every day for weeks at a time. Although radiation therapy is non-invasive and you may find it to be a relatively comfortable procedure, it is disruptive to your everyday life. The last thing you want to hear is that you must travel far out of your way for each treatment because your radiology oncology center’s treatment equipment is down.
Radiation Oncology Teaching Hospital Solution
The old adage you learn something new every day is true. Even when you’ve provided linear accelerators (linacs) and CT scanners to facilities around the world for years, you can still encounter a customer needing a unique solution. Radiology Oncology Systems (ROS) of San Diego recently completed one such project: a teaching hospital in Brooklyn had a very specific need within a specific budget and timeframe. New York Methodist Hospital’s Center for Allied Health Education, a radiation oncology teaching hospital, reached out to ROS about acquiring a patient-positioning system for use in training their students.
When James Madison University (“JMU”) of Virginia contacted R.O.S., we were excited. After all, two R.O.S. associates are graduates of JMU–Michael Teague and Ashley Saunders.
ROS is proud to have provided The Veterinary Cancer Center of Norwalk, CT a refurbished Varian 2100CD linear accelerator in February of 2012 for its new cancer center. Writes Dr. Gerald Post and David Duchemin, owners of the center, “Can’t thank you guys enough; your company has been responsive and helpful in working through the many issues presented during this project. Not too many companies post-sales support is in alignment or even comes close to their presale support. We look forwarded to working with you in the future.”
