BASKING RIDGE, NJ, September 5, 2006 -- Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center (MSKCC) opened a new state-of-the-art outpatient cancer treatment facility in Basking Ridge, New Jersey, today. The new 85,000-square-foot facility incorporates the latest concepts in therapeutic design and offers the most advanced cancer care services.

The center offers the highest standard of comprehensive cancer care, delivered by MSKCC clinicians in a facility designed to meet the unique needs of cancer patients and their families. A full complement of services to detect, diagnose, and treat cancer will be provided. These include outpatient chemotherapy, radiation oncology, comprehensive diagnostic radiology, medical and surgical consultations, cancer screening, patient education, and integrative medicine.

Imaging technology at the center includes a computed tomography (CT) scanner, digital x-ray imaging, mammography, stereotactic mammography, and ultrasound diagnostics.
