COE Radiation Center: 201-894-3125

The Coe Radiation Oncology Center at Englewood Hospital and Medical Center offers the cancer patient the benefits of state-of-the-art technology administered by experienced and highly skilled radiation oncology professionals in a personalized and caring environment.

The Newest Technology

The Coe Center is committed to providing the most advanced treatment options. Through the use of the newest technology, the most effective care is provided with an emphasis on reducing side effects while delivering the highest dose necessary.

The spiral CT scanner, a diagnostic tool, produces a 3D image of the tumor and surrounding normal tissue. A 3D planning system optimizes the radiation dose to the tumor while sparing normal tissue. The latest linear accelerators produce multiple energies allowing for more treatment options. Technologically advanced, the accelerators emit a radiation beam that conforms to the shape of the tumor, thus sparing normal tissue and reducing the possibility of complications. The Coe Center also offers state-of-the-art radioactive implants called Brachytherapy, now typically administered to its patients on an outpatient basis. During Brachytherapy, the radiation oncologist implants radioactive material directly into the tumor. The advanced technology of a High Dose Rate Remote Afterloader (HDR) used in many procedures at Coe Center provides a more efficient treatment process which allows the patient to go home the same day.

The most advanced technology of radiotherapy, Intensity Modulated Radiation Therapy (IMRT), is available at the Coe Radiation Oncology Center. IMRT, a sophisticated form of planning and treatment, allows for improved direction and delivery of dose with better avoidance of normal critical tissues.

According to Chief of Radiation Oncology, David Dubin, MD, "the radiation is defined very accurately using computers to shape the radiation beam to converge on the problem area. The computer changes the characteristics of the beams and only treats the problem area with a high dose of radiation, while sparing the surrounding healthy tissue with a low dose.” Unlike traditional radiation therapy, IMRT allows each beam to be modified to allow the dose to be delivered with ultimate accuracy.

A state–of-the-art PET scanner, a technology that reduces the time for diagnosis and assists in the early detection of certain types of cancer Cancer Fatigue Management Program for the management of chronic fatigue often associated with cancer treatments The Breast Care Center, designated by the US Congress as a national model for breast cancer diagnosis and management Lymphedema Management Program Participant in numerous clinic trials related to the diagnosis and management of many types of cancer Recognized by the College of American Pathologists for diagnosing breast tumors half the size of the national average
