Linear Accelerator Technology

Middlesex Hospital is proud to offer some of the newest, most precise radiation therapy equipment in Connecticut. The Middlesex Hospital Cancer Center was one of the first in the state to offer the Novalis Tx®Linear Accelerator, which significantly improved treatment for patients with cancerous or non-cancerous tumors anywhere in the body. It allows our radiation oncologists to perform painless, non-invasive outpatient treatments—pinpointing tumors with unprecedented accuracy and delivering more precise, higher doses of radiation with less damage to surrounding healthy tissue.

When our Shoreline Cancer Center opens in the fall of 2017, it will be home to the state’s newest radiation therapy machine: the Electa Linear Accelerator. This technology features the same level of power and precision, but adds a key benefit for breast cancer patients. Its Deep Inspiration Breath-hold respiratory sensor provides an extra layer of protection and safety for women diagnosed with left-sided breast cancer, because it is allows for the treatment of the tumor with reduced risk of damage to the nearby heart tissue.
