We are committed to providing a website that is accessible to the widest possible audience. To do so, we are actively working with consultants to update the website by increasing its accessibility and usability by persons who use assistive technologies
such as automated tools, keyboard-only navigation, and screen readers.
We are working to have the website conform to the relevant standards of the Section 508 Web Accessibility Standards developed by the United States Access Board, as
well as the World Wide Web Consortium's (W3C) Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.1. These standards and guidelines explain how to make web content more accessible for people with disabilities. We believe that conformance with these standards and
guidelines will help make the website more user friendly for all people.
Our efforts are ongoing. While we strive to have the website adhere to these guidelines and standards, it is not always possible to do so in all areas of the website.
If, at any time, you have specific questions or concerns about the accessibility of any particular webpage, please contact WebsiteAccess@tenethealth.com so that we may be of assistance.
The wide bore CT scanner is designed to increase quality and service to patients.
This technology is a multi-slice computed topography scanner with specialized features. It enables us to prepare and plan treatment with three-dimensional software. The virtual simulation technique allows us to dedicate as much time as needed to each treatment plan without patient discomfort or anxiety associated with standard simulator units.
The wide-bore CT and special computer software are used to plan intensity modulated radiation therapy (IMRT) for treatment of solid-tumor cancers in all areas of the body, including prostate, breast, abdomen and head and neck. It helps physicians see precisely and in great detail where a tumor is located.
