Hospital offers robotic couch

The New Milford Hospital Regional Cancer Center is the first in New England to install a CIVCO Robotic Couch for image guided radiation therapy (IGRT).

The couch allows patients to receive more fine tuning and improved precision throughout their radiation treatment.

Technologists are able to enter coordinates to correct a patient's position and treat the affected areas with a high level of certainty.

The IGRT equipment also has the capability of performing radio surgery, a noninvasive procedure.
