Radiation Therapy

Veterinary Cancer Group has been a leader in radiation therapy since 2007. Both Dr. Jarred Lyons, located in our Culver City and Woodland Hills offices, and Dr. David Bommarito, located in Tustin, are board-certified practitioners of this form of cancer treatment in pets. Radiation therapy uses a beam of energy focused at the tumor region to gradually eliminate cancer cells, and is often used in conjunction with surgery and/or chemotherapy.

Veterinary Cancer Group utilizes state-of-the-art, on-site Varian Trilogy Linear Accelerators to provide a variety of options for radiation treatment, including Definitive Radiation Therapy, Palliative Radiation Therapy, Image-Guided Radiation Therapy (IGRT), Stereotactic Radiotherapy (SRT), Intensity-Modulated Radiation Therapy (IMRT), and Strontium-90 Plesiotherapy. Veterinary Cancer Group’s linear accelerators feature cone beam CT scanners and other on-board imaging, allowing clinicians to rapidly and confidently visualize the tumors they are treating. The Varian Trilogy shortens patient treatment times, minimizes damage to healthy tissues, and provides a more comfortable, less stressful experience for the patient.
