Radiation Therapy

The Allegiance Radiation Oncology – Tejada Center is a professional partnership with the University of Michigan. The Center offers technologically advanced radiation therapy, including a high-precision TruBeam® linear accelerator, and the same high standard of care that is delivered at the University of Michigan.

Allegiance Health’s radiation oncology treatment options include:

Intensity-Modulated Radiation Therapy

Intensity-modulated radiation therapy (IMRT) is an advanced form of radiation that uses sophisticated software and hardware to vary the shape and intensity of the radiation beam. It is one of the most precise forms of external beam radiation therapy available.

Stereotactic Body Radiation Therapy

This technique precisely targets high doeses of radiation to small and moderate-sized tumors, while minimizing radiation exposure to surrounding healthy tissue.
