These services include a Medical Oncology office with infusion/transfusion center, a state of the art Radiation Oncology suite equipped with IMRT and IGRT capabilities, and a Clinical Research office. RRMC was the first hospital in Vermont offering IMRT; Intensity Modulated Radiatioon Therapy and IGRT; Image-Guided Radiation Therapy. Clinical research relationships have been established with CTSU [Cancer Trials Support Unit], the University of Vermont Medical Center, Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center, and the pharmaceutical industry. The Tumor Registry is one of the most active in the state. Palliative care programs for both inpatients and outpatients have their offices in the Cancer Center.
