e-IORT Benefits in Cancer Treatment

Oncology at Jupiter Medical Center

Jupiter Medical Center is one of a handful of facilities around the country offering this innovative therapy in its world-class Comprehensive Breast Program, which was the first program in Palm Beach and Martin Counties to receive the National Accreditation Program for Breast Centers designation.

Electron Beam Intra Operative Radiation Therapy (e-IORT) provides specialized treatment for cancer patients, especially certain women with breast cancer, allowing physicians to deliver a dose of radiation to appropriate patients during their surgery. By delivering this radiation at the same time the cancerous tissue is removed, six to seven weeks of post-operative radiation can be reduced to one day of treatment in some cases.

Some of the benefits of e-IORT:

  • Lessened Treatment Time
  • Reduced Radiation Exposure
  • Faster Return to a Normal Quality of LIfe

e-IORT allows radiation and surgical oncologists to visually see the exact area they need to radiate and immediately deliver a therapeutic dose to the affected area, sparing surrounding healthy tissue. In the best of cases, this single dose of radiation will be all a patient needs. For many others, this breakthrough will cut their required course of radiation treatment in half.
