Volunteer of the Month: August 2018

Jerry Ricks

It has only taken 2 years for Jerry Ricks to become the face of the EJGH pharmacy. His ever-smiling presence, attention to detail and willingness to always go the extra mile, (which to Jerry always just seems to be the right thing to do), has endeared him to the entire pharmacy staff but also those who deal with that department. Thank you Jerry for all you do to help make EJGH a truly great hospital.

TomoTherapy at East Jefferson General Hospital

With the addition of TomoTherapy, East Jefferson General Hospital is the only cancer center in our region addressing the two primary challenges physicians face when using radiation therapy to fight cancer:

  • Making sure the beam is reaching the tumor as planned
  • Minimizing harm to healthy tissue around the tumor

With it’s patented 360º delivery, TomoTherapy’s linear accelerator (linac) delivers treatment continuously from all angles around the patient. More beam directions give physicians greater control in how to plan treatments and more assurance the dose will be confined to the tumor. This maximizes treatment and reduces the risk of short, and long-term, side effects.

Thousands of Targeted Beamlets

The TomoTherapy treatment system uses a patented multi-leaf collimator (MLC) that divides the radiation beam into beamlets, all aimed at the tumor. Typically, tens of thousands of beamlets are used in a single TomoTherapy treatment session. Powerful software optimizes the contribution of each one to the total tumor dose, minimizing exposure to healthy tissue.

CTrue™ image guidance for every patient, every day™.

TomoTherapy’s unique ring gantry design facilitates a 360º delivery pattern. Perhaps even more importantly, it integrates true CT imaging that can be used on a daily basis to guide the accurate delivery of each treatment session. No other radiation therapy system offers this seamless integration of image-guided and intensity-modulated radiation therapy.
