The Penrose Cancer Center has new technology to help fight cancer in the Pikes Peak Region.

Penrose is one of only two hospitals in Colorado which offers the new treatment.

The new Trilogy System is designed to deliver radiation directly to the tumor, rather than a broad area in the body.

"With this device, we can treat with much higher doses than we've been able to in the past because more precise and accurate with delivery," said Radiation Oncologist, Alan Monroe, M.D.

St. Mary Corwin Medical Center in Pueblo is the other hospital in the state which offers the new cancer treatment.
