Trilogy® is the newest generation of cancer-fighting technology, combining three modalities in one piece of equipment. Available first in Connecticut at Hartford Hospital, Trilogy precisely pinpoints the exact location of the cancer and treats it with a highly accurate beam of radiation. Trilogy's Stereotactic Radio Surgery (SRS) function delivers a large dose of radiation to a very small and highly focused area, using a number of intersecting beams from multiple directions. Advance planning and precision physics are necessary to isolate the tumor and ensure that nearby healthy tissue is spared. The result for the patient is precise and powerful treatment with faster recovery. Watch as Hartford Hospital physicians demonstrate the use of this amazing new technology in a live Internet broadcast.
