Welcome to the Radiation Therapy Program Page!
Radiation therapy is the use of radiation to treat various forms of human disease, with a particular emphasis upon cancer. In many instances, radiation therapy is used in combination with surgery and chemotherapy to improve treatment outcomes. The radiation therapist is a vital member of the radiation oncology team, responsible for accurately delivering the prescribed course of treatment. This high-tech, high-touch profession provides the opportunity to deliver quality patient care and comfort while working with technologically sophisticated equipment.
