Gynecologic Cancers Treatment
Cancers of the gynecologic system include cancers of the vagina, cervix, uterus, fallopian tubes and ovaries. These cancers may manifest as palpable masses, pain, abnormal bleeding, abdominal or pelvic discomfort, or asymptomatically found on routine examination and screenings.
Treatments may involve surgery, radiation, chemotherapy or commonly a combination and the interdisciplinary approach taken at Jefferson provides the most optimal course of treatment.
Physicians have at their disposal conformal external beam radiotherapy, intensity modulated radiotherapy (IMRT) as well as intracavitary brachytherapy. Our resources include technologies such as image guided radiation therapy (IGRT) with conebeam CT, high dose rate (HDR) brachytherapy, CT/MRI compatible applicators for 3D planning and composite dose estimation.
