Patient Care

Patient and Nurse in treatment room

Careful consideration is taken to safely deliver radiation therapy to each patient seen within our department. Central to that care is a dedicated team of nurses, physicians, physicists, dosimetrists, and radiation therapists.

We are able to treat adult and pediatric cancers of the brain; thoracic cavity; breast; prostate; head and neck; gastrointestinal; gynecological areas; and eye.

Both more common external and internal beam treatments are prescribed to patients including:

  • Image guided radiation therapy
  • LDR (low dose rate) brachytherapy
  • IMRT (intensity modulated radiation therapy)
  • Steretotactic radiosurgery
  • HDR (high dose rate) brachytherapy
  • IORT (intra-operative) brachytherapy

Some less common treatments for rarer types of cancer are also treated in the clinic.  These include:

  • Eye plaques to treat intra-ocular cancer
  • Total skin irradiation therapy (TSE) to treat mycosis fungoides.

Clinics

Many of our faculty members serve in multidisciplinary oncology clinics.
