Compact and ergonomic systems
simplify treatment workflow.
Treat Arthritis and Ease Pain
Many animals suffer from arthritis and joint pain – in particular, some estimates suggest up to 20% of dogs experience these conditions and a reduced quality of life. Although there are surgical and pharmaceutical options to treat these conditions, experimental studies have shown that radiation can decrease joint inflammation. One study demonstrated that a single low dose of radiation therapy (10 Gray) may have a short-term benefit in dogs with elbow osteoarthritis. This is similar to the evidence supporting the use of radiation therapy in horses with orthopedic disease.
Use Radiation Therapy in Cancer Treatment
For nearly 30 years, veterinary practices have been using radiation as an important modality to treat cancer and reduce symptoms in companion animals. In certain tumors, the goal of using radiation therapy is to eliminate any cancer cells that may remain following surgery. Radiation therapy is typically used in conjunction with chemotherapy, immunotherapy, and other targeted therapies, for both curative and palliative purposes. Although the standard of care is intensity-modulated radiation therapy delivered with a linear accelerator, these treatments are very expensive. Low-energy orthovoltage treatments offer similar outcomes at a fraction of the cost.
