Scripps Clinic Radiation Therapy Center – Vista is located on Sycamore Ave. in the Sycamore Business Park, just minutes south of Interstate 78 in Vista, California.
The center provides comprehensive radiation therapy services using the most appropriate and effective ways to treat cancers.
The center offers innovative treatment options including breast conservation therapy (BCT) using AccuBoost. The radiation therapy technology enables doctors to target a breast cancer treatment area, including lumpectomy cavity margin, which is the tissue most likely to be a site of any future disease recurrence. The center is the first in San Diego County to offer patients AccuBoost.
Prone breast radiation therapy is another specialty treatment option available at the center. Through use of a custom designed table and imaging technology, this treatment allows doctors to deliver radiation doses while the patient is lying face down. The approach limits radiation exposure for breast cancer patients to healthy tissue and vital organs, such as the heart and lungs.
