Good news for radiation patents in Hampton roads Virginia

This is a duplicate posting of the article that I posted in the general section...

Here's a piece of good news for those looking at the radiation route in Hampton Roads...

I've met the new Associate Medical Director...he did my fiance's back surgery...  Dr. Steiner will not be coming to Hampton Roads but will be helping in the treatment planning..I talked to him last week conserning my AN.

Just wanted to share an article about the new Gamma Knife machine that will be installed in the Riverside Hospital here in hampton Roads Virginia:

The machine is the newest one on the market and will be handling the Gamma Knife load this June until the University of Virginia gets their machine upgraded.

Originally 1.8cm (left ear)...Swelled to 2.1 cm...and holding after GK treatment (Nov 2003)

Note: Riverside Hospital in Newport News Virginia now has GK!!

Thx Gary,

Always looking for new technology, especially as I will be facing GK at some stage - hopefully later than sooner.
