Anchorage and Valley Radiation Therapy Centers offer the full range of the most advanced radiation therapy technologies. This allows your radiation therapy team to develop and carry out the most effective treatment plan possible. We like to view ourselves as the Pioneers of Radiation Therapy, because we have been treating in Alaska for nearly 24 years, and our clinics feature the most current, advanced treatment options. Some of our most well-known technologies include:
Elekta Infinity™ a state-of-the-art radiation machine to allow physicians to target therapy more effectively and reduce patient session time.
Leksell Gamma Knife® Perfexion™ - Brain Stereotactic Radiosurgery System is a non-invasive method for treating brain disorders. It is the delivery of a single, high dose of irradiation to a small and critically located intra-cranial volume through the intact skull. It is preferred for its extreme accuracy, efficiency and outstanding therapeutic response. Today, Gamma Knife surgery is performed in hundreds of leading hospitals and clinics around the world. Around 70,000 patients undergo Gamma Knife surgery every year, and this unique procedure has an impressive scientific track record with thousands of peer-reviewed articles. No other non-invasive treatment method in this field has greater clinical acceptance. Click here to access a general patient brochure [pdf} detailing Gamma Knife treatment.

We are happy to announce the addition of Active Breathing Coordinator for the treatment of left-sided breast cancer. And the SpaceOar program for prostate cancer patients. Both of these systems are highly effective in removing the risk of radiation dosing of healthy tissue, such as the heart and rectum.
Coming soon to Anchorage- The Elekta Infinity, and coming to both Anchorage and the Valley, High Dose Rate (HDR) treatment.
