Community Health Network introduces new radiation system


Community Health Network announced it is the first health system in Indianapolis to acquire the Intrabeam System, a new radiation platform designed to replace as many as six-and-a-half weeks of routine radiation therapy with a single 20- to 30-minute targeted radiation treatment. This revolutionary system was shown to be as effective as traditional radiation for certain women with early breast cancer.

“During the past several decades, radical surgery for early breast cancer has been replaced by less invasive, cosmetically more acceptable operations,” said S. ChaceLottich, breast surgical oncologist with Community Breast Care. “Now, radiation therapy can be given as a single treatment directly to the site of the cancer during breast surgery. This approach not only eliminates the need for the traditional six weeks of outpatient treatments, but also avoids damage to the patient’s skin and surrounding tissues, with focus of the radiation directly on the cancer.”

Eligible candidates for the Intrabeam single-dose treatments include women who are 45 and older, with invasive breast cancer, a tumor less than 3.5 centimeters and no positive lymph nodes.
