Dr. Karp announced the installation of Syntegra, a specialized computer software program produced by Philips Medical Systems, the world leading company in the development of hi-tech radiation treatment planning software.

This permits us to precisely conform the external beam radiation to the tumor, while sparing the patient’s healthy anatomy.” said Karp.
