Rhinelander is home to a new piece of state-of-the-art cancer treatment technology. As WXPR’s Natalie Jablonski reports, Ministry Health Care’s James Beck Cancer Center held a ribbon cutting for the machine Wednesday.
The True Beam Linear Accelerator offers radiation therapy that’s much more precise than previous technology at James Beck. It also has powerful imaging capabilities which help to give a more accurate picture of a tumor.
Radiation therapist Lynnette Fittante demonstrates how the machine even rotates around the patient.
