Radiation Oncology Center and Team

Good Samaritan Center for Cancer Care Good Samaritan’s Radiation Oncology Center offers patients new approaches in radiation therapy while using the most advanced equipment and technology available.  The center features a state-of-the-art linear accelerator and the latest CT scan equipment, all housed in a warm, patient-friendly setting close to home.

We offer the following techniques in radiation therapy:
  • 3D conformal radiation therapy (3D-CRT)
  • Intensity modulated radiation therapy (IMRT)
  • Image guided radiation therapy (IGRT)
  • Stereotactic body radiation Therapy (SBRT)
                                                                                                                                                                             Stereotactic body radiation therapy (SBRT) is a technique designed to deliver radiation therapy very precisely to tumors anywhere in the body.  Such advancement in accuracy of radiation treatments allows higher doses of radiation to be delivered in a shorter period of time (typically 3 to 5 treatments carried out over the course of 1 to 2 weeks vs. a standard 40-day treatment regimen) thus potentially improving the likelihood of killing the cancer cells of a tumor and helping to reduce side effects for patients. We use SBRT for the treatment of small tumors in the lung and liver. Usually small tumors of the lung are removed by a surgeon. However, many patients have other medical problems that prevent them from undergoing surgery. For patients with small lung tumors who are not able to undergo surgery, we now can offer them SBRT.
Accredited by the American College of Radiology-American Society for Radiation Oncology, our center received its three-year certificate of accreditation in December of 2010 from the ACR-ASTRO Committee on Radiation Oncology Accreditation.

Zauls has specialized expertise and training in stereotactic body radiotherapy (SBRT) and stereotactic radiosurgery (SRS). He has published numerous articles in peer-reviewed journals for a range of treatments including head and neck, lung, breast, and prostate cancers.
