Radiation Oncology

A multidisciplinary approach to treating cancer should include radiation oncology as a key component. A linear accelerator is used to deliver high-energy x-rays (photons) to the target area. A number of cancers are treated with these painless, undetectable therapeutic x-rays.

To provide more precise therapy, recent technology has merged the use of 3-D imaging technology, computerized treatment planning, and high-energy x-ray machines. Professionals working in the field of radiation therapy include:
