Tests & Treatments

  • Echocardiogram
    Our radiologists and cardiologists use the latest ultrasound technology while performing an echocardiogram to assess your heart's ability to pump, as well as identify abnormalities with your heart muscle and valves.

  • Gamma Knife
    Our physicians are able to use the Gamma Knife system to precisely direct radiation to the problem area while sparing healthy tissue.

  • Linear Accelerator
    Linear accelerator (LINAC) machines have been proven to be a safe, effective treatment option for patients with inoperable brain tumors in dangerous locations, such as the optic nerve and brain stem.

  • MRI
    Our specialists often use advanced MRI technology to obtain visual detail of organs and tissues to help detect many conditions.

  • Radiation Therapy
    If you are concerned with how radiation may affect your health, Jefferson physicians have made great strides in reducing the effects of radiation on normal tissue surrounding the tumor being treated.

    If you or someone you care about has been diagnosed with a brain tumor, spinal tumor, arteriovenous malformation (AVM) or other neurological condition, you can take comfort in knowing that we can provide stereotactic radiosurgery and radiotherapy treatment options.
