Doctors at UofL Health are the first in the state to use a new brain cancer radiation treatment called the gamma tile.
GT Medical Technologies’ GammaTile is a surgically targeted radiation therapy (STaRT) for brain tumors. GT Medical Technologies designed the GammaTile to provide immediate, dose-intense treatment at the completion of resection. The company says the therapy system can extend local recurrence-free survival with minimal complications to reduce patient burden and assure compliance.
Kettering Health is now the first provider in the Dayton area to offer GammaTile Therapy.

Today is Glioblastoma Awareness Day, a day to help those affected by this devastating disease and remember lives lost to Glioblastoma (GMB), lives like Senator John McCain, and Mike Traphagen.
Tampa General Hospital and USF Health Morsani College of Medicine physicians are the first in Hillsborough County to bring patients experiencing recurring brain tumors a groundbreaking treatment.
GT has a number of advantages. Unlike with traditional brachytherapy, the collagen tile provides a buffer around the radiation sources, allowing delivery of the optimal radiation dose while preserving healthy tissue.
