Trilogy System

By Anakin Skywalker

Intro

       It’s hard knowing a loved one has cancer, I know how you feel my aunt has cancer. But it’s not hard for me anymore because I know the Trilogy system can treat her. If you want to know more about the Trilogy system then read this. I will start out with a short history of the Trilogy system, and then how it works, then last what it is.

History of the Trilogy System

Who used the first new Trilogy system?

According to (http://www.lifespan.org/rih/service…), The Rhode Island Hospital was the first to use the new Trilogy Stereotactic System.

How it works

       This paragraph is about what they use to find the tumor. According to   (http://www.lifespan.org/rih/service…), They use external beam radiation. In fact, they can use any type of external beam.

         This paragraph is about if you have to hold really still while getting treatment. According to (www.lifespan.org/rih/service…) The trilogy system isn't like other systems. It actually makes automatic adjustments so that you can breathe normally. Isn’t that cool!

       This paragraph is about what dimension the doctors can see the tumor. According to (http://www.cpmc.org/sevices/radiation-ocology/radiation/trilogy. html) Because of the Cone-Beam Computed Tomography (CT), the doctors can actually a 3-D image of the tumor. It also helps maximize accuracy and effectiveness.

         This paragraph is about if someone has to guide the Trilogy while someone is getting treatment. According to the website (http://www.lifespan.org/rih/service…), the Trilogy System is image guided so you don't have to operate it.

         How do they get rid of the cancer?  According to (http://www.massy.vcu.edu/trilogy/patientqa.html#w), instead of the Radiation getting rid of the tumor or lesion; it damages the DNA of the tumor cells.  Then the cells lose their ability to reproduce and die over time.

What is it?

       This paragraph is about what they use to find the tumor.  According to the website (http://www.lifespan.org/rih/service…), They use all forms of external beam radiation.

         This paragraph is about what part of the body can be treated. According to        (http://www.lifespan.org/rih/service…), the body, neck, and head can be treated. I wonder if you had cancer in the leg they could treat it.
