Cancer Center Improvements Bring Treatment Closer to Home
Thursday, January 10, 2013
The Rideout Cancer center has brought in the first treatment and diagnosis technology that allows doctors to perform biopsies, place catheters, and order imaging on site. Doctor Scott Christiansen from UC Davis is the medical director. He says the expansion allows patients to receive treatment closer to home, "We doubled the capacity of our radiation oncology provider. And we also increased the clinical space for our medical oncology providers as well as infusion room capacity."
