When you make a referral, you don't want any uncertainty in the back of your mind. You want to know - you
need to know - that when you refer a patient, the expert and compassionate care they receive reflects the standards your clients have come to expect from your practice.
With a referral to PetCure Oncology, you never have to wonder. We deliver all of our treatments and services with standards, checks and balances based on quality assurance protocols that are commonplace in human medicine. Your patient could not be in better hands.
THE PETCURE DIFFERENCE
Quality assurance is always crucial, but never more so than in the delicate, precision-based world of radiation therapy. As technology continues to increase our ability to treat cancer with greater efficacy, adhering to strict guidelines that ensure patient safety and optimize outcomes becomes all the more critical.
PetCure Oncology at Lakeshore, every radiation therapy treatment is planned and reviewed by two board-certified radiation oncologists. Each is verified by advanced treatment planning software and tested through a phantom validation plan. Prior to every treatment session, a physical inspection of the equipment and its settings is conducted. And each treatment is delivered by a human-licensed radiation therapist that is trained and experienced in the delivery of advanced radiation therapy with a linear accelerator and on-board imaging.
We also pride ourselves in utilizing some of the most scientifically advanced technology, combining the best available equipment with software like
Radialogica. They enable our clinical teams to deliver treatment with precision, safety and efficacy while capturing information and continually optimizing delivery protocols.

Quality assurance measures like this provide yet another example of how PetCure Oncology is leading the way in cancer care for pets.
