Service Offerings The principal treatment and diagnostic imaging modalities provided at the company’s centers comprise: Linear Accelerators External Beam Radiotherapy: As of December 31, 2013, the company owned 30 linear accelerators and 1 MM50 intensity-modulated radiation therapy systems. Linear accelerators use microwave technology to deliver a high-energy X-ray beam directed at the tumor. Linear accelerators could be used to treat tumors in the brain or elsewhere in the body. Gamma Knife Radiosurgery: A gamma knife is used in radiosurgery for the treatment of tumors and other abnormal growths. The company’s network of centers operates two types of gamma knife systems, such as head gamma knife systems and body gamma knife systems.

Head Gamma Knife Systems: Head gamma knife systems are primarily used for the treatment of brain tumors.
