New Cancer Center Opens in Bay County

Hope Radiation Cancer Center to Offer Area Cancer Patients Faster, Ultra-Precise Radiotherapy Using New RapidArc Radiotherapy Technology administered by the Board Certified and Area’s only Fellowship Trained Radiation Oncologist.

 
PRLog - Jul. 10, 2012 - Panama City, Bay County, FL –  Cancer patients in Bay County now have access to improved cancer care at the Hope Radiation Cancer Center. The Center announced that it began offering a fast, precise form of radiotherapy using advanced technology RadipArc treatment. This new treatment, installed and operational since June 2012, is two to eight times faster than conventional radiotherapy.

“We’re really excited to be able to offer patients this excellent treatment option,” says Hasan Murshed, M.D., Medical Director. “RapidArc technology will enable us to target cancer accurately while sparing more healthy tissue."

Hope Radiation Cancer Center’s RapidArc technology delivers image-guided IMRT (intensity-modulated radiation therapy) very quickly, in a single rotation of the treatment machine around the patient. “RapidArc will be much easier on the patient," says Dr. Murshed, “It’s hard for people to hold still for long periods of time. By delivering doses quicker and more efficiently, we can simultaneously improve the quality of care and make our patients more comfortable."

About RapidArc Technology

RapidArc treatments at the Hope Radiation Cancer Center will be delivered using a iX Silhouette medical linear accelerator from Varian Medical Systems, outfitted with an On-Board Imager to guide patient placement and treatment delivery. During a RapidArc treatment, the radiation is shaped and reshaped as it is continuously delivered from virtually every angle in a 360-degree revolution around the patient. This creates an aperture to exactly match the tumor, avoiding normal critical organs from high radiation dose, and making treatments much safer for patients.

About Dr. Hasan Murshed

Dr. Murshed obtained his medical degree from the University of Dhaka, and received his radiation oncology residency training at nationally recognized institutions including the National Cancer Institute and the University of Alabama – Birmingham, where he was the chief resident. He then received his Fellowship training from M.D. Anderson Cancer Center, where he specialized in Prostate Cancer, Breast Cancer, and Lung Cancer. He has published many cancer-related articles and authored a popular radiation oncology textbook. He now brings his high level of expertise and world-class cancer treatment technology close to friends, family and home for Bay County cancer patients.

“I am proud to say that Hope Radiation Cancer Center is my only practice location and all my patients get my personal attention and care as they always deserve,” says Dr. Hasan Murshed. “Our mission is to provide hope to every patient through the most effective and compassionate cancer treatments.”
