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.

Prostate Seed Implants (Brachytherapy)

Brachytherapy is an advanced cancer treatment. Radioactive seeds or sources are placed in or near the tumor, delivering a high dose of radiation while minimizing radiation exposure to the surrounding healthy tissue.

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. 

Exercise can help prevent future back pain by improving your posture, strengthening your back and improving flexibility.
