CHI St. Luke’s Offers New Radiation Therapy


CHI St. Luke’s Memorial Health Systems is bringing state-of-the-art cancer treatment technology closer to home for residents in the East Texas area.

The $4.5 million Elekta Synergy linear accelerator will allow doctors to offer patients quicker treatments, often as short as five minutes. The radiation therapy offered by the system also means fewer side effects, and with onboard CT scanner, more processes are completed by the new therapy system.
