Gastrointestinal Cancer Radiation Therapy and Treatment at UCLA
Radiation therapy is effective and commonly utilized alone or with surgery and chemotherapy for rectal cancer, anal cancer, gastric cancer, pancreatic cancer, and hepatobiliary maligancy. In addition, a highly sophisticated, pin-point radiation called stereotactic body radiation therapy (SBRT) is available at UCLA to treat limited metastatic disease from gastrointestinal malignancies.
At UCLA, we have state-of-the art and comprehensive treatments including intensity modulated radiation therapy (IMRT), rapid-arc, 3-dimensional conformal radiation therapy, as well as SBRT to offer to patients with GI malignancies. We collaborate extensively with our colorectal/surgical oncologist colleagues and GI medical oncologist at UCLA to attack the disease in a multi-disciplinary fashion.
