Advanced Technology

Avera Cancer Institute at Sioux Falls is equipped with the most advanced cancer care technology available:

  • Gamma Knife: Offering “precision without the incision,” Elekta Gamma Knife Perfexion™ is an extremely accurate form of radiation therapy that’s considered the gold standard for non-invasive treatment of brain tumors and other disorders.
  • Elekta Versa HD™ Linear Accelerator: This powerful linear accelerator offers specialized capabilities, including stereotactic body radiation therapy, stereotactic radiosurgery and VMAT, which “wraps” the tumor with radiation dose using changing position and speed as beams sweep in arcs around the patient, providing faster delivery at an ideal dose while minimizing exposure to healthy tissues.
  • Brachytherapy Suite: A private suite is dedicated to brachytherapy – a very tailored, localized radiation treatment that involves placement of an applicator at the tumor site, and delivery of a radioactive seed that emits radiation from the internal location.
  • IORT: Electron-based intraoperative radiation therapy is used in the treatment of early-stage breast cancer to shorten the course of follow-up radiation treatments after lumpectomy. For some women age 60 and older, IORT serves as a one-time treatment at the time of surgery. IORT also is used to treat certain gynecologic cancers and advanced cases of colorectal cancer.
