Where does innovation live?
Patients with the same kind of cancer can respond differently to the same treatment. Until recently, we didn’t understand why that happens.
Now we’re able to target cancer care based on your specific cancer. This type of cancer care is called precision medicine.
At the Center for Structural Heart Disease at Henry Ford Hospital, our heart experts are pioneers in the latest advancements for structural heart disease treatment. We are constantly working on innovative techniques to offer you the safest, most effective treatments possible. We offer comprehensive care with a compassionate touch for people with heart valve disease and other diseases affecting structures of the heart.
MRI- guided Radiation Therapy
The Henry Ford Cancer Institute is the first in the world to offer patients an advanced radiation therapy that uses an FDA-approved real-time magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) to deliver more precise and accurate radiation treatment using a linear accelerator.
With this new system, called ViewRay MRIdian Linac®, it is now possible to image the treatment area and deliver radiation at the same time -- more effectively protecting surrounding healthy tissue.
